Threshfield Primary School is located in Threshfield, Skipton and is under the authority of North Yorkshire County Council. We currently hold 62 pupils from the ages of 4 – 11 years old. We are a voluntary controlled school which means we are mainstream school but we also have a body of trustees, due to the historical aspects of the school, who support the running of the school.
We were founded in 1674 by Matthew Hewitt, for the local boys from the surrounding areas to attend. In 2001, a lottery funded grant enable two purpose-built buildings to be erected. These house the classrooms, school library, administration office and staffroom.
Outdoors, the school benefits from a large playground, a playing field, outdoor climbing apparatus and two outdoor areas linked to classrooms which enable free flow learning to take place. As well as the facilities within the school grounds, we also have access to numerous outdoor walking trails and areas of forestry that our trained staff access with the children.
The school currently provides education for children aged 4 -11 years olds but after a successful recent informal consultation with the local community, we are in the process of developing facilities to provide education for 3 year olds (pre-school children) within our Early Years Foundation Stage Classroom.
Our main-feeder for secondary education is Upper Wharfedale School, located in Threshfield. The school provides outstanding education for its pupils, recognised by Ofsted in their latest inspection (June, 2019).
