Welcome to the Federation of Snape and Thornton Watlass Primary Schools


Our very successful federation consists of two small rural primary schools. Geographically very close, within 3 miles of each other, they enjoy an enviable environment for your children’s education. We are passionate about pursuing educational excellence for our pupils and developing a passion for learning to last their lifetimes.

Together we are able to offer ‘the best of both worlds.’ Individually, we are able to offer all the advantages of small rural schools, e.g. the caring and supportive ‘family type’ environment and enviable class sizes; but as a partnership, we can also offer the benefits of the larger school, such as a dedicated Early Year unit and wrap around care.

We hope you enjoy looking at the information provided on our website and we would be happy to welcome your children in either of the schools.

Mrs Kathleen Allison, Executive Headteacher
