Richard Bonington Primary and Nursery SchoolTogether,'we make a difference'


Welcome to the Richard Bonington Primary and Nursery School Website. Our new website has been developed to provide an overview of the many exciting things that take place at our school – we hope you find it interesting and informative.

Richard Bonington is a large Primary School of approximately 480 children including a 60 place Nursery Unit. The school serves the town of Arnold, which is 5 miles north of Nottingham.


The school was built in the 1950’s and named after Richard Parkes Bonington, a locally born artist. It occupies a large attractive site with extensive grounds and facilities. We are very proud to have recently opened a new £1.5m foundation unit, equipped with the latest technology.


The school offers a Curriculum which is creative and allows for excitement to run alongside enrichment. We have an inclusive approach and strive to achieve the highest possible standards for all our children. Our curriculum is enhanced by our outdoor provision – our ‘Forest school’ has recently achieved national recognition, and is frequently used as a model for other schools.


If you would like to visit our school to find out more – please do get in touch.
