Working together with God's help we can all achieve great things...
Our school mission statement is inspired by the story of the loaves and fishes. With the humblest of ingredients Jesus performed a miracle, feeding the many.
We believe that no matter their background, every child has the potential to achieve great things. In our school we aim for all children to succeed no matter how great the challenge, in many ways we have the privilege of witnessing little miracles on a daily basis. We like to think that God is with us and helping us in our day to day lives, and that when children leave our school they have a sense that there is more to the world than just their own needs, that they have an understanding of the wider community and personal spirituality
Mrs Mary King’s is a small village school with strong community spirit. We aim to provide an excellent education to all who come to us. What we lack in size we make up for in attention to the individual.
Mrs. Mary King's School was founded in 1753 when the lady of that name gave land and set up a charitable trust to provide a school to teach the children of the parish "reading, writing and the common prayer." Our children still learn reading and writing every day, prayer remains important part of collective worship.
Nowadays, the school serves children from a wider area including the villages of Timberland, Martin Dales and Thorpe Tilney. We also have a number of children who come from villages outside our catchment area such as Billinghay, Woodhall Spa and Walcott. Those who live in our catchment but more than two miles away are entitled to free transport to and from school. Although we are a faith school, we are open to all, and children of all faiths or none are equally welcome.
Our philosophy is that we aim to provide children with as broad, exciting and relevant an education as possible. Some of this involves preparing them to take statutory assessments, but we value other aspects of education just as much. To this end, we teach many things which are additional to the National Curriculum. We place a great deal of emphasis on developing the personal and social skills of our children so that they quickly become confident, articulate, tolerant and polite. Through the school council, they also learn about the systems of democracy and have a genuine role in the running of the school. We value all successes that children demonstrate, not just in the accademic subjects, but also in the arts, sports, community work etc.
