This site will stay on line for a further 18 months to act as an archive, however no new content will be added.

As it will take some time for the search engines to promote us to their front pages we suggest that you bookmark the new site.   If you are unsure how to do this click on the “show me how to bookmark this website”  link at the bottom of the main page on the new website.

An "outstanding" school that strives to continue to be outstanding.

Here at Toddington St George Church of England School we aim to provide a secure and caring environment within which the children can grow in confidence and independence. Each child will benefit from memorable, enjoyable and challenging learning experiences which will enable him/her to develop academically, socially, physically and spiritually. A socially acceptable code of behaviour, which has regard to the needs and feelings of others, is encouraged at all times.


A message from our Headteacher


Welcome to our school website. We hope this gives you a window on school life at St. George’s. I have had the privilege of leading the children and staff at Toddington St George Church of England School (TSG) for six years. At TSG we believe strongly in ensuring every child is known, taught well, valued and cared for. This belief is underpinned by the sure foundation of the Christian ethos of the school.

At Toddington St George’s we work hard to give all the children the very best education we can. We have developed many aspects of the school curriculum, the school site and the opportunities for children to enjoy activities or be cared for before and after school.  

There are many highlights to choose from, and you will see how we have developed the breadth of the curriculum on our Awards page or on the Class pages. You will see children achieve at a high level –see the Achievement and attainment section of our Results page. In each photo you will get a taste of the atmosphere and mutual respect children and staff have for each other in school.  

Points you may wish to consider if you are looking for a school in the local area include:

  • TSG children are really super children!
  • TSG Key Stage 1 results have been significantly above national averages for 5 years in maths, writing and reading.
  • Ofsted graded the school as Outstanding in last full inspection and in the 2011 review of the school.
  • TSG is known for fantastic care and concern for children as learners and individuals.
  • There is excellent commitment to teaching of children with specific needs modelled by the outstanding work of the Hearing Impaired provision.
  • We retain skilled, experienced staff who respond to guidance and input and enjoy developing the school for these children.
  • We have a determined approach to ensuring positive behaviour so children can learn.
  • TSG is well respected in the local community and used by the local community on a regular basis.
  • The school provides a wide range of co-curricular opportunities
  • We have retained strong external providers for extra curricular activates      
  • Our parents responded to our Parent Survey and we enjoy fantastic parent support through our Parent Governors, our PTA and our Parent Forum.
  • Students and teachers, volunteers and parents ask to come and work with us; we also support other schools.
  • TSG has developed an excellent relationship with our local middle school (Parkfields) and provide excellent transition links.

We will be very pleased to welcome you to view the school and an appointment can be arranged with Mrs Child (School Office Manager, 01525 872360).
