Riseley CofE Lower School

The village of Riseley is situated approximately ten miles north of Bedford along the A6. The village itself is relatively large and accommodates our Primary School. The majority of pupils transfer to Sharnbrook Secondary school at the end of Year 6. Some children travel to school by bus from the surrounding areas of Melchbourne, Yelden, Pertenhall, Swineshead and Bletsoe. A number of pupils also attend the school from out of the catchment area.

Our current School has just relocated to the High Street in August 2017, opening as a primary school in September 2017.The original Church of England Lower school in Church Lane, close to All Saints Church, dated back from 1841.

In September 2017 we became a one form entry primary school with two Year 6 classes in 2017/18 only. There are currently 235 children in the school, ranging from three years to eleven years. This includes 16 children in the nursery (Foundation Stage), who attend the school part-time. Children are accepted into the nursery in the term following their third birthday and remain the Foundation Stage until the July after their fifth birthday.
