Welcome to Applegarth Primary School. Our historic building is in the centre of Northallerton in the heart of North Yorkshire. When our school was built in 1909, it was intended to be the model school in the county. It is our goal to make this vision a reality.

We have big ambitions for our school as we continue to share and develop excellence for our children and our staff team. We welcomed our Headteacher in September 2019 and our Deputy Headteacher in April 2020. Over the last two years, we have overhauled our curriculum, reading provision, leadership structure, policies and learning environments. Our ongoing development in terms of educational achievement and commitment to raising standards is at the core of what we do. We have a robust induction package to support you as a new teacher at Applegarth. We are committed to the professional development of our staff and can offer tailored CPD to support your career aspirations.
