I’ve been to many schools in my short life, but Exton and Greetham CofE Primary School is the best school I’ve ever been to.
Here are some reasons why:
The teachers at this school really inspire me to take on challenges and have improved my presentation and my handwriting.
At this school there are brilliant books.
I really like this school because nobody picks on you and everybody’s nice and kind to each other. If your child gets picked on, bring them here, they won’t get picked on any more.
Also we have the best clubs. On Monday there is cookery club, on Tuesday there is art and craft, on Wednesday there is reporters club, on Thursday there is activities club, on Friday it’s Fun Friday!
So there you have it, some reasons why should definitely bring your child to Exton and Greetham CofE Primary School.
I have been to many schools in my life, but this school is the best school in Rutland. If you want to you can go there, but ask Mrs Davis first, don’t go ahead and do it.
If you find stuff difficult Mrs Almond will help you.
The field is as big as the playground. We have an afterschool club.
If you are looking for the best school then look no further. This is the best school in Britain!
The first day you come you will automatically be a part of this school because we children will look after you. The teachers care for you and they teach you very well. They also take us on the best field trips.
We have the best field to play football on.

This school has one of the best teachers on the world. We have lots of room for the children to play outside. I want more kids to join in the school so there is more fun and you can get lots of friends. The school field is massive and we can fit more than 100 people.
Are you looking for a perfect school for your child? Well you came to the right place.
Exton and Greetham Primary School is an awesome place to be. I have been here since reception and I love it. As we are a small school I think that we get to do more fun adventures and trips. Our wide range of books is amazing as well as the library van coming every two weeks on a Monday! We believe that the best things come in small packages.
Our lessons are really fun and if we don’t understand anything we just ask the teacher or teaching assistant and they will help us understand what we are doing.
Come and visit our school. We would highly appreciate it. Contact us at: 01572 812380.
