Welcome to Wilderspin School

The Museum and Old School Canten are closed due to Tier 3 restrictions.  We’ll re-open as soon as we can in 2021.

We have had support from Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire to help us invest in more efficient heating for the Joseph Wright Hall, as part of an £8.5 million Smart Energy programme part funded by the European Regional Development fund.
