Rise to
the Challenge

Welcome to Foxton

I am incredibly proud to be the new headteacher of Foxton Primary School. Situated on the edge of Market Harborough, Foxton is a small rural primary school surrounded by beautiful countryside. The Foxton motto – 'rise to the challenge' - is palpable in our mission to empower every child to leave school with the knowledge, skills and compassion to make a positive difference to society. Traditional values of manners, teamwork and kindness are our golden threads as we deliver an education fit for the challenges of the 21st century. 

George Norman 
Headteacher
