Skipton Parish Church C of E (VC) Primary School

Believing and Achieving Together

Overview

We are a large rural school, set in the historic market town of Skipton, “Gateway to the Dales,” and easily accessible to Harrogate, Leeds, Bradford and Lancashire.  We are able to accept a maximum of fifty children in each year group and currently have spaces throughout the school.  As a diverse school, we embrace and celebrate the uniqueness of each and everyone.

We are linked with Holy Trinity Church in Skipton and the church works closely with the school both through the governing body and through collective worship and other events. Parish Church of England School also links closely with the wider community in Skipton, which helps to provide our children with values to make them responsible citizens. We have a very active Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) who organise a variety of fun activities throughout the year and also raise funds to provide many extras for the children.

There is currently a natural progression from the nursery next door. We have a strong parent and pupil voice the school’s reputation amongst the wider community continues to improve. The school has good relationships with members of the Castle Alliance and Northern Lights Teaching School Alliance.
