Kirkby Thore School

Aim High


Thank you for looking at our website and considering Kirkby Thore Primary School for your child. We cater for children aged four to eleven years of age. Children can start our school in Reception class at the beginning of the school year in which their 5th birthday occurs. If you have a younger child, please ask us for details about how you can apply for Kirkby Thore Pre-School which is joined to our school.  

Why not visit us?

We encourage all prospective parents to visit the school so you can meet staff and pupils, and discuss your child’s transition. We look forward to giving you a tour.

Please book an appointment by calling our office administrator Julie Palmer on (017683) 61497 or  e-mail:
