Docking C of E primary school
Welcome to Docking
Here at Docking, we really want all our children as they pass through the years to have the highest possible aspirations for everything they do, whether it be work or play. Docking School and Nursery is a small, popular school in the village of Docking situated between Hunstanton and Fakenham, just over 4 miles from the North Norfolk coast. We enjoy excellent relationships with our local community and particularly our beautiful village church, St.Mary's. The school thoroughly enjoys a broad range of educational visits, trips, sports fixtures and other ventures which are enthusiastically supported by everyone. Docking School is fortunate to enjoy wonderful facilities including a large purpose-built sports hall, a modern nursery environment and a spectacular "Field of Dreams".
