Key Silsoe Amenities
Silsoe is a thriving community with many services and amenities that residents can use. From a range of services incuding our own post office to schools and a lesiure centre
Silsoe V.C Lower School
Our vision is to be an excellent, God-centred, values-based, community-focused school where everyone is welcomed, encouraged and included.
The cornerstone of all of our work is our ‘Christian Values’ based education, which is embraced by the whole school community. These values are our guiding principles. They work together to create a successful and happy school and encourage every child to develop into a caring, responsible, hardworking and positive person.
Silsoe Community Centre
The Centre is owned and operated by the Parish for the Residents.
This modern facility is found on Chestnut Avenue in Silsoe. The Fitness Room, is equipped with Technogym equipment and mywellnesscloud technology.
Other facilities include a Dance Studio, with a range of fitness classes, a 2 court Sports Hall for Badminton and Short Tennis sessions and a MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) which is available for hire.
St James Church, Silsoe
A key to the achievement of our vision is the creation of a welcoming atmosphere to support worship and community spirit.
Our Church is a vibrant, growing community and we hope that you will find much to interest you in the variety of services, as well as the many social and community events organised by the Friends of Silsoe Church or by the Parochial Church Council.

The village of Silsoe is in the county of Bedfordshire situated midway between Bedford and Luton on the A6 and between Ampthill and Shefford on the A507.
The village name is derived from the Danish word ‘hoh’, in “Sifels hoh”, meaning “Sifel’s hill”.
To work on behalf of Silsoe residents where we focus our efforts on maintaining our picturesque and historic village as a place where people aspire to live; with housing and services to meet the needs of all our residents; where traffic is managed so that our sites are accessible to visitors; and that local businesses enjoy the benefits of being advantageously placed, yet respect the heritage of the village.
