Believe, enjoy, achieve.

Welcome to our school website


As a school, we aim to ignite a spark for learning in all young minds, that inspires and creates independence for life, within an environment that is safe, stable and caring for all. Our staff, governors, parents and pupils are determined to provide the very best for our children so that they learn in school and for life.

We have a fantastic group of young people and amazing staff. The staff ensure that the children always have the very best experiences in school, provide a wonderful, enriching curriculum that enables ALL of our children to enjoy themselves and achieve great things!  

We have completely re-written the 'Curriculum fit for Overthorpe' to ensure that our children are engaged, inspired and have a clear purpose for their learning. We utilise our amazing grounds to cater for all our children, giving them an exciting learning experience everyday!

Our school’s Christian values are Trust, Friendship, Endurance, Hope and Forgiveness and we aim to instil these in everything that we do in school and believe that these represent our fantastic pupils, Christian beliefs and the local community. We believe in all our children and we are committed to ensuring that our children are always ready for the next step of their development.

We hope you enjoy looking at the website and all the fun and exciting learning that goes on here!
