Welcome to our school

Hunton and Arrathorne CP School is a small village school in Lower Wensleydale between Catterick Garrison, Bedale and Leyburn. We believe that the key to a productive school life is for children to feel happy and secure which is something we pride ourselves on at Hunton & Arrathorne. Our class groupings are kept small for the core subjects of English and Mathematics and this enables us to really know the children, to meet their needs and to help them to focus on their next steps, to challenge them and to extend their learning.

We have responded fully to the DfE guidelines regarding COVID-19 and are confident that school is a safe environment for our whole school community.  

I will be working to lead school until the substantive headteacher, Mr Sam Donaldson, is able to fully take up his post in January.  He and I will work closely with all staff in the meantime to ensure that pupils are safe, happy and are able to catch up any lost learning due to lockdown as soon as possible.

If would like to find out more and arrange a time to visit (socially distanced), please contact the school office.
