Our Vision

Our school is a Safe, welcoming place where everyone, including the vulnerable, are valued, nurtured and encouraged. 

Enquiring minds grow ‘a Love of learning’ and appreciate the world, themselves and others.

Our rich, creative curriculum provides time and space for the mind to grow, and spirit to Flourish. 

Markington School dates back to 1789 when it was founded by the Wilberforce family. The school remains on the same site and has  been extended and modernised to provide 4 classrooms and two playgrounds. In addition to the school site we use the Village Institute for PE and drama. The village has excellent sports facilities with an all-weather games area, cricket and football pitches.  We are a church school with close links to St. Michael’s Church in the village.

We welcome children to the school from 3 years old who will join our nursery class. As a small school, the class organisation can change but we always prioritise small class sizes and high quality provision. As children reach the end of their primary education they transition to a range of independent, selective and state schools in the Harrogate and Ripon area. We work closely with these schools to ensure a positive transition for all children.
