Welcome to our School Website

Scholes J and I is a Community School, catering for children aged 4 – 11 years old.  Our school prides itself as being highly valued and appreciated within the local and wider community.

The original school building was built in 1908 but has been modernised over the years, most significantly in 1976 and again in 1982.  In 2004 there was an additional mezzanine level extension above the main building.  We have extensive grounds for outdoor play and learning including a purpose designed ‘Stadium’ which provides for lots of different sports.
