The intention is to go ahead with Sports Day. Those children competing should be at the field by 1.15pm ready for a prompt start at 1.30pm. However, due to the very wet weather we have decided to limit the number of cars that can enter the field. Only Form 6 cars can go on to the field (one per family) and must stick to the road that runs around the edge of the field. Mr Taylor will help get cars parked. Cars must not go on to the grass area as they are likely to get stuck! Please do not park on the verge of the A414. Don't forget that St Mary's Church at Widford have kindly agreed to let us use their car park. If you intend to park in Widford Road or Links Drive please park with consideration to our neighbours. Should there be further significant rain we may have to postpone the Athletic sport. We will communicate as soon as we can, via email, twitter and this site.



Widford Lodge aims to educate its pupils through a broad and balanced curriculum so that they can meet the challenges of the wider world.

Children of all abilities are educated in an environment where emphasis is placed upon providing a purposeful, safe and secure environment. This is achieved whilst taking into account the values of honesty, courtesy and respect of self and others.

Welcome to the Widford Lodge Preparatory School Website. Widford Lodge is a small family owned school that prides itself on providing an environment where children between 2½ to 11+ can flourish.


Traditional values are at the core of the school's philosophy, but we are mindful that we are preparing youngsters for a rapidly changing world. Quite simply, we feel that children who are happy and secure in their learning environment are children who are more likely to achieve their potential.

I do hope that by browsing this website you can get a sense of what Widford Lodge has to offer your child. Do come and visit us and meet the pupils and staff. I look forward to meeting you soon.
