Our school is a very special place where we enjoy learning together. I am delighted to be telling you about our school, which is located in the beautiful rural village of Ingleton. We have excellent facilities including, our spacious school buildings, outdoor climbing equipment and large school field overlooking the countryside. We offer places to children from age 2-11, including wrap around care from 8am until 5.30pm.
We strive to have high academic standards for all and continually strive for excellence. We believe everyone is unique and has the right to develop not only academically but also culturally, socially and spiritually. As a church school, we promote strong Christian values and ensure every child feels valued, safe and nurtured. Our school is united by love, care and compassion and our whole school is like one big family.
Visitors are always welcome to our school, so please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to come and look around. I shall be delighted to show you around our school and discuss with you and your child/ren what we are able to offer.
Thank you for visiting our website.
