Gretton Primary School is situated in the centre of the village of Gretton, a thriving community with its own parish church, council, village hall, playing fields and public house. The school enjoys close links with the wider community.
There has been a school in Gretton since 1862. It was originally housed in the village hall but with the help and generosity of Emma Dent of Sudeley Castle, who gave land and a sum of money, the present building was erected in 1892.
The school currently has 98 pupils who come mainly from Gretton, Greet, Stanley Pontlarge, Gretton and Alderton Fields, and Winchcombe. During their time in the school, children move through three ‘stages’, namely, Foundation Stage (Year R, Ages 4-5), Key Stage One (Year 1 and 2, Ages 5-7) and Key Stage Two (Year 3, 4, 5 and 6, Ages 7-11). The school has four mixed age classes; Robins – Reception, Kingfishers- Years 1 and 2, Owls – Years 3 and 4 and Eagles – Years 5 and 6.
