Welcome from the Head of Junior School

Welcome to the Cokethorpe Junior School website and I hope that it gives you a flavour of what makes our School such a vibrant, happy place.

Our children are excellent company: great fun, hard-working and eager to be involved.

We want them to make the most of being in an environment which encourages them to aim higher, try harder and expect more of themselves. This could be in the classroom, on the games field or during one of the many Junior School activities. 

As they progress through the School they will be equipped with the necessary academic and social skills to enable them to develop into happy, confident children who make the most of all of the inspiring opportunities that school life offers. 

Expectations for work and behaviour are high; we challenge children to exceed their suggested potential in class. Learning must be fun too, and our talented, dedicated and creative teaching staff provide a wealth of learning opportunities, both within the classroom and in the wider environment. 

Importantly, the children uphold the core values of the Junior School: good manners, caring about other people, being responsible, and looking after each other and the school environment.

Visitors often comment about the exceptional classroom atmosphere and the warmth of the welcome they receive and I do encourage you to come and experience this for yourselves.
