Festive Singing to Residents at Local Care Home 

The Year 1 and 2 children of Denton and Harlaxton joined together to sing a range of festive songs to the residents at Apple Trees Care Home. Together we sang songs including Away in a Manger, It was on a Starry Night and Jingle Bell Rock.

Remembrance Service


On the 11th November, all the children and staff at Harlaxton school observed a two-minute. Additionally, all classes created a display piece for the local church which we presented in time for their remembrance service on Sunday. As a community, we have many families who are members of our armed forces and we recognise their contribution throughout the year so to be able to observe the silence as a whole school was incredibly powerful and the children demonstrated respect throughout. 

Rotary Club - Shoebox Appeal 


The local Rotary Club asked our school community to participate in their shoebox appeal. The families are asked to pay £2 for a box to fill with items to send to children who are less fortunate. The money paid goes towards the transport of the boxes so that their generosity can be spread far and wide. The boxes will be sent to poorer families in Eastern Europe and are filled with useful items and gifts. We were so proud of our children and their families and were delighted to hand over their kind donations to our local club.

Harvest Festival - Food Donation 

Some Year 5 children took the generous donations of food to the Grantham Foodbank. Once the food was dropped off, they were given a tour of the supplies they have. It was amazing to see the generosity of the local people as well as businesses that support families in need. A great experience and rewarding to see the benefit this has upon people in the town. 

Harvest Festival - 2022

There was a fantastic turnout for the harvest festival this year. The children enjoyed performing an array of songs, poems and readings. Your generous donations of food will be donated to the Foodbank in Grantham to support local families.

Queen Elizabeth - 1026-2022


The children in Year 2 decided they wanted to pay their respects to HRH Queen Elizabeth II since her passing. Together, they made a wreath, wrote a message of condolence and held a service within the village church. Not only did the children share their respects, the community were pleased with their generous touch for the village service

Grantham Swimarathon

This year our Harlaxton Acorn teams raised £390 for the Grantham Rotary Swimarathon.





Book Trust

The children dressed up as a character from a book and gave a donation.  Together, with Denton CofE Primary school,  we raised £240 to buy books for children in poverty so they can access literature.
