About Our Schools

The Federation was established in 2011, joining together two small rural Primary Schools: Snape Community Primary School and Thornton Watlass Church of England Primary School. The schools are geographically very close, situated within 3 miles of each other, in the beautiful North Yorkshire Dales – an enviable environment for your children’s education. They retain the advantages of being small rural primary schools and also benefit from advantages of being part of a much bigger organisation.


Snape Site - Sunflowers Class:

Nursery and Reception children are taught together in our Early Years Foundation Unit, with a teacher and teaching assistants.  Alternate Fridays, our younger children visit Thornton Watlass to join in with Forest School activities.
