Ribby with Wrea Endowed Church of England Primary School is located at the heart of the village, adjacent to the Green, the Church (St. Nicholas) and the Pub (The Grapes).  We are a small school with 130 pupils grouped in 5 mixed age classes, both from the local community and from further afield, including Lytham, Blackpool and Kirkham.  We believe that pupils learn best if they are happy and enjoy their work.  Pupils have the opportunity to develop their interests and skills in both National Curriculum subjects and other activities and extended services.  Whatever the ability of the child, they are encouraged to fulfil their full potential.  Ofsted (2010) verified that 'pupils make good progress' and that their 'attainment is above average'.  The teaching is good and staff  demonstrate 'outstanding care, guidance and support'. We are proud of the fact that pupils' behaviour is outstanding and that they show a desire to do well  in all they do, whether lessons or being a play leader or buddy, being an office monitor or doing a performance for the senior citizens in the village. The Christian faith underpins all we do at Ribby with Wrea and we enjoy very good links with the church and community.  Each Wednesday the whole school visits church for a service led by Rev Wes and pupils often participate in Sunday family worship.  Pupils are involved in many village events such as singing at the switch on of the Christmas lights, performances for the community and Field day on the Village Green.  We also have developing links with communities from further afield, including twinning links  with St Bris in France and schools in Africa.

Visitors to school are always welcome.
