The new Littleport campus has made excellent progress in recent months this was evident as seen on a recent site visit by the schools’ management team.

However at Millfield we believe very much in providing a range of rich opportunities for all our children. It is through these that children learn about the things…

With 3 members of staff, they spent 2 nights away from home taking part…

Yes! This summer in the spirit of commemoration of the people who took to the streets to protest their lot, Littleport Community School pupils re-enacted this important part of their village’s history. Along with other groups, the children in period costume set off from the site of former pub, The Globe.
