Welcome to Morton Trentside Primary School


Thank you for visiting our school website. We would love for you to come and visit our wonderful school in person and see first-hand the experience that our learners have each day in this very special place.


At Morton Trentside, we provide a caring and nurturing environment where we deliver an inspirational curriculum that promotes the development of the whole child so they can thrive and achieve in an ever-changing world. Morton Trentside prepares children to be well-rounded individuals ready to take their next steps in life’s journey.


Morton Trentside continues to be a popular over-subscribed school situated on the outskirts of Gainsborough. We have a fantastic team; each day, we are delighted by what our children say and do. We believe that "it takes a village to raise a child" and constantly seek ways by which we can be involved in improving our local area and work together with other community groups and organisations to celebrate life and opportunities in and around Morton.


We have excellent facilities and offer a curriculum that is enriched by many educational visits and visitors.



We hope that you will enjoy exploring our website.

The History of Morton Trentside Primary School

Morton Trentside Primary School was built in 1843 as a 'national school'. In 1871, it was enlarged, and the infant schoolroom was added in 1882.

By 1903, the school was known as Morton CE School and, in 1929, it was taken over by Lindsey County Council to become Morton Council School.

In 1946, senior children were transferred to Ropery Road School and, in 1947, the school became Morton County Primary School.


A new school was constructed near Morton playing fields and was officially opened on 11th June 1986. It took its present name of Morton Trentside Primary School in September 1999.
