Rise to
the Challenge

Welcome to Foxton

I am incredibly proud to be the 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 courage, respect and responsibility are our golden threads as we deliver an education fit for the challenges of the 21st century.
