About our School
Welcome to Roby Mill
Welcome to our friendly, nurturing school founded on our Christian Vision and Values, located at the heart of Roby Mill village.
It’s no secret that we’re a small school. That’s what makes learning here such a unique experience. We have a staff of five, led by Headteacher Mrs Nicola Grand, and a student capacity of just 56.
We currently have two classes: one combining early years and KS1 (reception and years 1-2), and one for KS2 learners (years 3-6). Children learn together in mixed age and ability groups.
Small classes create a focused learning environment with a family feel and a range of benefits for children. Read more about the benefits of choosing a small school.
Did you know...
The original school building dates back to 1876 and the original stonework is still visible in our vaulted classroom. An extension was added in 2005 to create additional classroom and office space, joined to the old school via a conservatory.
Strong community links
Our location in the beautiful rural setting of Roby Mill village helps us build strong connections with the local community, our church and the Don Orione care home. These relationships create a warm, caring, happy learning environment where everyone feels welcome.
A rich and stimulating space to learn
We are focused on giving every child a rich and rewarding experience so they leave with a love of learning, high self-esteem, pride in their success and are ready to enjoy the challenges of life. We prepare young people for their world, not ours.
Through tailored, individual support, we are proud to help each child to develop his or her full potential, equipping them with skills, knowledge, attitudes and values which relate to our ever changing world. At Roby Mill children can expect a vibrant, welcoming and stimulating space to develop and grow.
Education based on Christian Values
We are a church school belonging to the Diocese of Liverpool. Prayer and worship are central to school life. Our school community plays an important role in the spiritual and moral growth of pupils as well as their intellectual and physical development.
Daily collective worship is a key feature of our timetable. Children take part in Nativity plays, the Harvest festival, Easter and Leavers Services all held in St Thomas the Martyr Church.
Our staff encourage children to explore and develop their Christian values at school and at home. Bible stories, readings, displays and role play together with prayer and singing create interest and understanding of Christian beliefs. Each term we focus on a different value and share a range of ideas for activities, challenges and storytelling to bring it to life.
