We are currently working in partnership with the Diocese of York, North Yorkshire, North Yorkshire Music Services, The North Star Alliance, our local cluster of Schools and Club Doncaster (Doncaster Rovers) to deliver the very best outcomes we can for our primary aged/school children.  


We are very proud of the children and their achievements, and we have a very dedicated staff team that works hard, alongside governors, parents/carers, the church and the whole community to provide the very highest levels of education.


Please contact the school if you would like to know more about us or would like to look around the school. We are always happy to be of assistance, and we would love to hear from you if you have any comments or questions about our school.
