Menston Primary School is a warm, friendly and successful school full of brilliant people (most of them under 12 years old!). Our children are fabulous. They care about their friends, their school and their world, and they work hard to learn and to teach each other interesting, useful things. They particularly like our commitment to providing regular opportunities for Learning Outside the Classroom in all year groups - be that running the Daily Mile, pond dipping, minibeast hunting and den building or just being outdoors and learning about the natural world. Whilst doing all this they achieve very high standards. The children have taught us that the school should be ‘Making our World a Better Place.’ So that is what we work together to do - every day.

Arranging a visit to Menston Primary School

Interested candidates are invited to visit the school Tuesday 28th June 2022 at 4:15pm. Please contact Hannah Veil at recruitment@menstonprimary.co.uk to confirm attendance.
