Monksmoor Primary School

Daventry's Monksmoor Park CE Primary School opened its doors in September 2018, following a £4.275million project led by Daventry District Council and funded by contributions from Monksmoor’s housing developer Crest Nicholson, as part of its planning obligations on a site within the development.

Built by Willmott Dixon Construction to high environmental standards, it includes a range of teaching spaces alongside general classrooms and school hall, as well as staff, welfare and administrative rooms and an outside learning area.

It is a Church of England school, run by The Diocese of Peterborough. 

The Monksmoor development on fields off Welton Lane is one of Daventry’s Sustainable Urban Extensions (SUEs) to accommodate the town’s significant future growth, and has outline planning permission for 1,000 new homes, employment and community facilities and a primary school.
