Carlton & Faceby and Bilsdale C.E are happy, caring and supportive primary schools with an incredible warmth and a welcoming family atmosphere. We provide nurturing environments, based on Christian values, where all individuals are treated with fairness, respect and equality and where the interests of our pupils are paramount. Our pupils are well behaved, respectful and accepting of each other.

We are a friendly, welcoming, child-centred, Church of England federation of two primary schools situated between the picturesque villages of Carlton in Cleveland and Chop Gate, 6 miles from the cobbled high street of Stokesley. Perfectly nestled at the foot of the stunning North York Moors National Park, the villages offer the ideal blend of rural village life - a small, close community which is very open and embracing of new people. but is also with easy access to larger nearby towns and within a workable commute from cities such as York, Leeds, Newcastle and Sunderland. The schools work closely with their communities and each is promoted to ensure it remains visibly high and attractive to parents.

Our schools are focused on the development of the whole child, enabling each pupil to feel cherished and challenged to fulfil their potential in relation to academic and personal development within a supportive, Christian, family orientated environments where everyone cares for the well-being of each individual in their community.
Your remit will be to raise standards by developing the federation and partnership across our schools and with their wider communities. You will also ensure our schools continue to challenge themselves in all aspects of school life, ensuring that pupil outcomes are maximised.
