We hope that within this introduction we have included all the services and leisure facilities that our village has to offer, for both residents and visitors. Goxhill is a large village of around 2,300 residents, and still growing. We have retained our village library, run entirely by gallant and very able volunteers, where not only can books be borrowed but the internet is available, with assistance if needed. The Doctors Surgery is located in the centre of the village together with a pharmacy.



Shops include a general store, a post office with its own shop, two hairdressers, a fish and chop shop, pet food supplier, a car repairers and garden machinery servicers, and just on the entrance to the village a tyre replacement service. There are numerous small businesses also within the village, supplying many of the essential services.



We have a selection of leisure activities available some needing membership, others generally accessible: Tennis (hard court), a beautiful bowling green and children's playing field, together with a multi-use games area. Snooker is available in the Memorial hall, which can also be hired for private functions, shows etc. There are several stables in the village some giving riding instruction and an equestrian show is held in the village each year.



For keen gardeners there are allotments, which, from time to time become available. For the leisurely walkers there are many footpaths to explore, providing good exercise and possibly a different view of the village. A Primary School is located centrally, within easy walking distance of most homes, and is very much part of the community.



The village is served by churches of different denominations, and our community benefits from their organisation of, and taking part in, functions and activities throughout the year, who can miss the wonderful bell ringing from All Saints church, and the annual open gardens day started and organised by the Methodist church, and together with their helpers, still going strong.



Transport is provided by a Rail link through Goxhill which runs regularly from, Barton to Cleethorpes, connections can then be made to many areas. A local bus service also provides connections between local villages.



Goxhill Primary School teaches children from 3 to 11 years old and has an excellent reputation. It was rated as Good at it's last 2 Ofsted inspections, but strives to be Outstanding.
The school is also highly regarded in North Lincolnshire and has taken the lead in educational initiatives, most recently introducing Mastery in Maths and Deeper Thinking to fully embed the learning of the children.
Pupils achieved excellent results in the 2017 statutory assessment outcomes, achieving above Local Authority and national averages in every area apart from KS1 writing (so this is school priority for improvement). The school has an excellent Foundation Stage taking in children from the age of 3.
All teaching is good to outstanding and many enrichment activities are organised to broaden the education. The school has an excellent reputation for its work with Special Educational Needs children and is pioneering the Forest School initiative that takes outdoor learning to a new level.
