Welcome to Old Basford School
In reading the information provided on our website, I trust the overall impression you gain will be one of a caring school, a school which genuinely strives to work in the best interests of all its children. Also, a place where parental support and interest is welcomed, because it is only with mutual co-operation and understanding of home and school that this goal can be achieved. However, as with all written communications, this website may not answer all your questions, so please do not hesitate to contact our school on any matter which requires further explanation or clarification.

A huge well done to our Year 5/6 Street Dancers who performed at Ellis Guilford.
A huge thank you also to the 12 parents/friends and family that came to support us, cheering us on every step of the way! AMAZING!

A VERY PROUD MRS SHAW
Our visit to see Tim Peake
Afterwards we went into our room and we were in grey group. In our room we saw two presentations before lunch. There was a choice: pizza, jacket potato and macaroni cheese. After lunch we went back to our room to present our presentation and see the rest of the other schools. Then Tim Peake came into our room to see each of us personally and we each got to ask him a question. Also we got a group photo with Tim.
Then it was time to get back on the minibus and go back to Nottingham!
