Partners in Education

The Diocese

As a Church of England Federation our main partner in Education is the Diocese. We 'learn and grow together' with them to help each and every child flourish in our schools. Church schools have a reputation for securing transformational outcomes for young people by combining academic rigour with a rounded approach to personal development, rooted in the worship and other shared practices that characterize the life of their community. 

Nursery Education

We offer flexible Nursery provision at St Cuthbert’s Primary School. Please find out more in the Nursery section of this site, alternatively contact Angela Lumley, School Business Manager for further information.


Should you require child care, the school has close partnerships with local childminders, child-care providers and holiday clubs. Please contact the school for more details.

Secondary School

Most of our children attend our local secondary school, Nidderdale High. Our schools work closely together to ensure a seamless learning journey from Primary to Secondary School.  North Yorkshire County Council provide a bus service from Lofthouse to the secondary school every day.  Should you require a Church of England Secondary School, our closest is St Aidan’s.

Nidderdale Primary Schools

Our Federation has close links with Glasshouses Primary School, Dacre Braithwaite CE Primary and the Federation of Darley and Summerbridge. The schools share good practice in order to get the best possible education for children in Nidderdale.
