Growing and Learning through
Faith, Inspiration and Fun.
I am delighted to welcome you to Kirk Hammerton C of E Primary School. We are a small village school with big ambitions, set in the heart of our village community. Kirk Hammerton C of E Primary School is part of a newly established Federation of schools with Staveley Primary School. Through the Federation we seek to broaden the experience of children in small school settings and share the skills of our experienced and dedicated staff.
Our mission is to develop young people with active, enquiring and creative minds who have, and continue to develop, a deep-rooted love of learning.
We recognise that each child is an individual and that all children need to succeed and gain an understanding of the wider context of our local and world community.
Our website is currently being reviewed and will soon provide you with a flavour of life at Kirk Hammerton C of E Primary School. Meanwhile, myself and Mrs Appleton, Assistant Headteacher across Kirk Hammerton C of E and Staveley Primary schools, would love to show you around and tell you more.

Wind in the Willows
Pupils in all classes were treated to a visit from artist Ray Mutimer (in Mr Toad's classic car!), who has prepared some stunning artwork using Knaresborough as the setting for key scenes in "Wind in the Willows". The paintings tie in with a community-based performance of "Wind in the Willows" to be held in Knaresborough in August. Ray explained how he prepared the artwork through sketches and redrafting; children asked a range of questions about being an artist and which was the most difficult artwork to prepare.
