About Us


Based in the picturesque village of Appleby Magna (near the borders of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire) Sir John Moore Primary is a small Church Aided School.

Set in a Grade 1 listed building, designed by Sir Christopher Wren, the pupils benefit from observing history and sustainability in action every day.  From the protected wildlife in the grounds through to the recreated school room in the Heritage Centre at the top of the building, the children are inspired by learning in such a unique and historically significant environment.

As a Church of England Aided school, we're proud to have strong links to our local church. (See 'Our church' tab for further information)
