Welcome to the Fountains Family

Where Curiosity and Creativity, Spirituality and Excitement, Reflection and Responsibility are the Foundations of Learning.


Principal Our school sits in the beautiful countryside of North Yorkshire, providing an environment that gives our children first hand experience of the outdoor classroom where they can engage with the changing seasons and be part of our rural community.

A sense of family is very important to us and we want our children, parents, teachers, helpers and members of the wider community to work together.

We know, of course, that our children are the future, that we are preparing them for a life that we cannot predict; for jobs that haven’t been invented yet. We need to enable our children to learn skills that will allow them access to learning wherever and whenever it may be.

We have built our reputation on providing learning that is of high quality, not quantity, it is not about the coverage of subjects but about the impact of subjects on learning.

Learning at Fountains is underpinned by a strong Christian ethos, we want our children to explore values, develop empathy, to be resilient and resourceful and to make connections with the wider, global community.

Self-evaluation is central to our teaching and learning and we aim to offer a modern, relevant and distinctive world class curriculum to our children.

It is a big task. We have a dedicated team of staff who are passionate about developing every child’s potential. They are committed to providing an excellent curriculum and to promoting high standards of achievement and attainment.

Come and see us, you will be most welcome. Help us to give our children an appetite for learning.
