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.
