Welcome to Scholes Junior & Infant School

I am delighted to welcome you to the Scholes Junior and Infant School website and hope to give you a flavour of our joyful school in the heart of Summer Wine country. One of our key aims at Scholes is to equip children with the essential knowledge and skills for life and to prepare them for the next steps in their learning journey. 

I am proud to work with a team of hardworking and dedicated staff who strive to provide the very best curriculum possible which is reflective of the National Curriculum and the Scholes area. Alongside this, we aim to enrich the curriculum with a whole host of exciting visitors, trips and activities to add to your child's cultural capital.  

Pupil development is rooted within our KIND values - Kindness is key within all interactions at Scholes School and children embody this with each other, staff and all visitors. Our pupils are encouraged to build Independence - from the first days in Reception, right through to the leadership roles held in Key Stage Two. We Nurture not only one another, but also the talents of every individual where success is celebrated. All staff encourage children to have Determination in their actions - mistakes happen but provide valuable learning opportunities for personal growth. 

Our pupils really do 'learn through enjoyment' - come and have a look round our wonderful school and see for yourself! 

Mr Andrew Hancox,


Please be courteous to our neighbours / local residents when dropping off or picking up your child from school. There have been repeated problems with residents being blocked in / out - particularly around the garages in Broomhill Close. We always encourage our parents who choose to use the car to 'park and stride' for the benefit of everyone around Scholes School.
