Welcome to our school

It is a pleasure to have this opportunity to introduce you to our school and I hope you will find the information on this website both interesting and helpful. We moved Bishop Thornton Church of England Primary School into our new premises in the village of Burnt Yates, renamed as Admiral Long CE Primary School, on 1st September 2019. We are a village school for children aged 4 - 11 situated just a few miles outside both the towns of Harrogate and Ripon.

We are a warm and welcoming school, very concerned with the welfare and pastoral care of our pupils as well as the academic standards they achieve. The staff endeavour to bring out the best in each child and have high expectations of pupils in terms of their learning and behaviour.

We believe that we can achieve the best for our children through close co-operation between home and School and we encourage parents to play an active part in the life of the School.

There is a strong partnership between parents, staff and Governors at Admiral Long CE School and our school prides itself on its multi-layered links with the local Church community. We intend to develop an involvement with our new local community of Burnt Yates, as well as keeping our links with the village of Bishop Thornton.

To help parents with busy lives we have have The Admiral's Crew Wraparound Care, running in school from 7.30am until school starts every day and from 3.30 to 6.00pm Monday to Thursday evenings.

We welcome your interest in our School and warmly invite you to make an appointment to visit us.

Miss Victoria Kirkman

Executive Headteacher
