Kirkby Thore School

Aim High


Welcome to Kirkby Thore School.

At Kirkby Thore, we pride ourselves on putting our children first. Because we are a small school, with a family atmosphere, we have happy children who are wanting to learn. Every child is treated as an individual and given access to our exciting and varied curriculum which allows children to make the most of our excellent outdoor areas. The children work together and support each other to help them 'Aim High'. Due to the nature and size of our school, we are able to work closely with parents to ensure your child's needs are met and that every child reaches their full potential.  


As our 2017 Ofsted report states:-


Parents describe Kirkby Thore as ‘a great village school’ in which their children develop a ‘love of learning which comes from the teachers and how well their children settle when they join the Reception class because of the school’s family atmosphere’.


If you would like to visit our school and see the work we do, I would be delighted to show you around.
