Thank you for visiting our website, we hope you will find the information you need here.

We offer a broad curriculum and a wide range of exciting experiences both within and outside school, with our out of hours clubs. Our Nursery is extremely popular and is now open mornings, lunches and afternoons.

Our aim is to help each child to fulfil their potential and to work closely with them and their family to enable this to happen.

We, the staff, parents and pupils, feel that we have a very special school, which is built on the principles of Catholic life. We have strong links with our local church and with the wider community in Skipton. Our pupils come from all over the Craven area, including the Dales.

We pride ourselves on the care, support and happiness at our school.


If you would like to visit the school, you are welcome at any time.
