Pool Church of England (VC) Primary School is a one-form entry primary school, serving the village of Pool and surrounding areas. Built in 1974, the school offers excellent facilities in idyllic surroundings. The school is situated near the Village Hall and local sports ground. Its own grounds are extensive and include two playgrounds, a sports field, conservation area and gardens. The adventure playgrounds enhance play facilities for both infant and junior pupils. The River Wharfe is close by, providing an additional opportunity for environmental study.
The school is organised on a one-form entry basis. Each class has its own semi-open plan base, together with toilets and cloakroom facilities. Additional facilities include: a wireless laptop computer network, a multipurpose hall equipped for P.E., Drama, Music, Collective Worship etc, libraries for KS1 and KS2, a Music / T.V. room, Technology Room and shared working areas.
We see our school as part of the wider community and we actively encourage and develop links with the village activities of Pool, particularly those of the two churches. The school is a member of the Otley Family of Schools and enjoys close links with neighbouring schools. Many of children from Pool transfer to Prince Henry’s Grammar School in Otley at the age of 11, but we also have pupils moving to secondary education at other schools in the area, including those in Harrogate.
