We are fortunate to be placed at the heart of the historic City of York.

We want the children to begin a learning journey that will continue throughout their lives. Active learning and teaching are central to all that goes on in our school. We encourage and motivate all children to “achieve great things together”, wherever they come from and whatever their needs.

We pride ourselves on the strong partnership and relationships we have with parents and carers who we encourage to play a full part in supporting their children’s learning. We are an inclusive and open school and we ensure that the children are happy, safe and enjoy their learning.  Do come and see us!
