Welcome

Welcome to Wheldrake with Thorganby CE Aided School

I would like to extend a very sincere welcome to Wheldrake with Thorganby Church of England School. Located in the lovely village of Wheldrake, just south-east of York, our school was described as good in the 2014 Ofsted inspection and outstanding in the SIAMS inspection (June 2014).

Our school is a warm, friendly place of learning where we are all working together to be the best we can be. Our last Ofsted inspection report (January 2014) states that:

“Pupils enjoy learning and try hard in their work. Their attendance is outstanding and their behaviour is good. Pupils form trusting relationships with staff, and so feel safe and happy at school.”

Our aim is to nurture children to become lifelong learners so that they can achieve well in all areas; academically, creatively, socially, physically. Our varied and exciting curriculum evolves to ensure we are preparing our pupils for the 21st century.

We are proud of our strong partnerships with our parents and carers and within the community. We work alongside our local churches, St Helen’s in Wheldrake and St Helen’s in Thorganby. We also have close links with our local cluster of schools, the South Yorks Schools Partnership, and with our local feeder settings.We are scheduled to convert to academy status in May 2018 and will then be a member of the South York Multi Academy Trust.

I look forward to welcoming you and your child and would encourage you to come and visit us to find out more about what makes this school so special.
