The school was founded in 1964 and has progressed from small beginnings to become the full and highly regarded school it is today. The Viking School provides education for children aged 3-11 and is the only independent school in the Skegness area.
The school is predominately situated in a large comfortable house, alongside other purpose built classrooms. Each classroom houses a separate year group and are well- equipped with modern facilities including PC's with internet access. All pupils also have access to a bank of portable, wireless linked, laptops. A homely assembly hall provides the facilities for drama, music and dining. Children enjoy breaks in an adequate play area, as well as accessibility to a small gardening plot. Alongside the facilities available within the school grounds, children use a nearby church hall for sporting activities. In summer months the school is privileged to use the facilities at the Skegness Grammar School for physical education, culminating each year with a Sports Day for the whole school. Pupils attend swimming lessons year-round at a local swimming pool.
