Welcome to Fountains Earth Website
Welcome to Fountains Earth Lofthouse Church of England Endowed Primary School serving the Upper Nidderdale community. The school was endowed in 1743 for the education of ten poor boys of the parish. Since then it has been rebuilt and modernized to very high specification.
We have 29 pupils on roll who come from the villages of Lofthouse, Middlesmoor and Ramsgill as well as from isolated farms in the area. The school is in Upper Nidderdale within an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.
Our school has a close knit family feel, where everyone is valued and supported as they make their educational journey through the school. As part of the ‘Dale Teaching Alliance’ we have close connections with 8 other primary schools and 1 secondary school. This helps to ensure that our pupils have stimulating, high quality learning opportunities. In September 2014 Fountains Earth Lofthouse CE Primary School entered into an innovative partnership with St Cuthbert’s CE Primary School at Pateley Bridge. Both schools are led by Mrs June Brown as Headteacher and both schools will benefit from economies of size and greatly enhanced professional development.
Above all, this is a school where each child is encouraged to achieve highly and be the best they can be within a relaxed and happy working environment.
We are always happy to meet with you and show you all that we do and achieve in this very special small school. If you would like further information or to arrange a visit then, please contact Alison Walker, School Administrator on telephone 01423 755289
