Love of Learning, Love of Life, Love of One Another
Our school is a small, excellent village Church of England school situated between the rural communities of Kirkby-in-Cleveland and Great Broughton in North Yorkshire. We have very strong links with the parish church of St Augustines in Kirkby, the communities of both villages and the Diocese of York. The school has stunning views of the Cleveland Hills from the playground and many of its windows.
The school was founded by the Henry Edmonds Trust which was set up for the purpose of providing education for the young people in the area. Originally there were two schools, one in each village, Kirkby for boys was founded in 1683 and the Great Broughton school was for girls only. The two schools were amalgamated in 1974 with a new purpose built school, which forms the foundations of the school we see today. The school was officially opened by Archbishop Donald Coggan.
Our last Ofsted report in March 2013 deemed the school to be a 'good' school. 'Good teaching ensures that pupils make progress and have attainment which is well above average.' 'Behaviour is excellent around school and older pupils enjoy playing with and looking after younger children.'
The SIAS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools) report in March 2013 deemed the school to be an 'outstanding' church school. 'The school's commitment to 'living out' Christian values results in an excellent Christian education.'
