Welcome from the Headteacher

A warm welcome to Lowe’s Wong Anglican Methodist Junior School.  We are a lively, forward-looking church school with long established links with the local community.  Our school’s origins go back well over a century when the National Church of England (1840) and Methodist (1871) schools were built to serve Southwell.  

The name ‘Lowe’s Wong’ requires some explanation too, particularly to newcomers to the area.  The word, ‘Wong’ is of Scandinavian origin; it is a common feature of Nottinghamshire field names and refers to a piece of unenclosed meadowland.  Lowe is a family name, and this family leased Dunham Prebend for about 120 years.  The adjoining wong was let with the house and the major part of this now comprises the school grounds.
