Skillington Life


Skillington also has a new Village Hall  which hosts a broad variety of regular activities from radio controlled helicopter flying to pilates classes. Detail of some of these activities is in the What’s On! section.

Local Schools

We have no primary school in the village, however there are three excellent small primary schools serving Skillington.

Buckminster Primary


Great Ponton CofE school

All are about 2 miles away.

The secondary schools are in Grantham of which there are many. The most famous being The Kings School which is now a fully selective Academy Grammar School. The bus service timings are ideal for pupils to commute from the village.

Local Places of Worship

We have two churches in Skillington. A Wesleyan Methodist Chapel in the Square run in association with Saltby Methodist Church and the Anglican Church of St James at the top of Church Street. Activities of both churches are to be found by clicking this link which will take you to the relevant section of the What’s On! Part of this web site
