I would like to offer a warm welcome to you and your family. Here at Bishopthorpe Infants we are a happy and thriving school in the village of Bishopthorpe, just outside the beautiful and historic city of York. We are committed to providing high quality, highly focussed, early learning experiences for all our pupils to give them the best education possible. We value the importance of first-hand experience, learning through play, creating a stimulating learning environment and planning with a progression of skills in mind. Our curriculum aims to build on knowledge and skills in throughout each year group to embed and secure learning in each subject of the national curriculum.


The success of our school relies upon the positive partnership between home and school, and we are grateful for the active interest our parents show in school life. Relationships are fostered through parent meetings, school events and clear communication. We offer  a school where staff and governors are very committed to delivering the best education possible for all of the pupils in our care. Working together as a partnership we ensure that children have the opportunity to build firm foundations which will equip them for their next steps.


We have a strong partnership with Archbishop of York's Junior School with whom we have worked  to ensure our curriculum progression is seamless as pupils transition into Year 3. From there pupils move on to various secondary schools, which include, Fulford, Millthorpe, Tadcaster and All Saints RC School.


Our website provides a wealth of information about our school and showcases work our pupils do and the standards we aspire to. We hope that you will find it helpful.


This is a school of which the staff, pupils, parents and governors are very proud!
