Willaston Church of England Primary School

Our Community


School enjoys being part of the local community, and in this respect participates in many activities, including fund raising for a varied range of charities. In many instances, charities have been linked to members of the school community who have been helped by these organisations. In addition to fund raising, pupils contribute in many other ways to community life. There are many instances where the school and local community come together. Everyone in school enjoys being a part of community life, and it is an involvement that benefits everyone. We are a Church of England School and have very close links with Christ Church, Willaston, and Reverend Stephen Bazely.
