Our school has proudly served the families of Colne for nearly 120 years since it opened as a ‘board school’ at the end of Queen Victoria’s reign. We have grown significantly since then and now have about four hundred children taught in two classes in each age group.
The school motto is to, ‘be the best you can be’ and that is the feel you get from our children and staff when you visit. Our ethos is strong, and we place great emphasis on the care and guidance our children receive to enable them to be good learners. The school is a happy, caring and vibrant place.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum based on the national curriculum but designed to help our children become well rounded, confident and resilient students who love learning. We teach all the areas of the curriculum you would expect but add into that Forest Schools, regular trips and opportunities to join in activities like sailing, judo and our drama club (we performed Midsummer Night’s Dream at Burnley Mechanics last year).
We are an outward looking school and this year we are excited to be joining the Pennine Trust with our three partner schools; Blacko and Laneshaw Bridge Primary Schools and Park High School. We look forward to the work we will do together to better support all our pupils.
