Worthington Primary School

History of the school


The school is a Community Primary and Nursery school for children aged 3 – 11.

The School

The first Worthington Primary School was built in 1905 and was the first Council School to be erected in Cheshire. Over the years, many improvements to the building were carried out. However in 2013 the time came to say goodbye to our old building and in September 2013, we began a new chapter in the life of the school with the opening of our beautiful brand new school. Developed on existing school land, it took a year and a half to plan and then build. A wonderfully exciting partnership between Trafford’s architectural, asset management and development teams, the school, and our builders, Willmott Dixon resulted in what we see today – a magnificent school fit for purpose.

The school is built of brick and consists of eleven classes in main-school, one nursery class, two more in Early Years, three in Key Stage One and five in Key Stage Two. There is a central hall, which serves as a designated PE area, dining, as well as an assembly hall. In addition there is a studio attached to the main hall offering opportunities for dance, drama and music. The school also has a very well-stocked library, guided reading unit, ICT suite and a food technology room.

Nutritous, balanced and varied meals are made daily on site by our highly qualified chefs in our state of the art school kitchens.

The school offers a wide and exciting range of before, during and after school clubs, as well as clubs during holidays.

We also provide ‘wrap around’ care between the hours of 8.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m. each school day through our partnership with ‘School’s Out’ – part of the Elmscott Group. Details of this service can be obtained from the school office. This is situated in our newly refurbished annexe and is completely self contained with toilet and kitchen facilities.

The grounds are extensive, and include an outside classroom developed by the children with financial assistance from the school’s PTA. We are further developing our grounds with mature trees and allotments.
