Rated as "Good" in its latest OFSTED inspection, Keighley St Andrew's Church of England is currently a 2 form entry Voluntary Aided Primary School with 386 pupils. We offer a stimulating learning environment and are privileged to serve a caring and diverse community. Our children are delightful, welcoming and are our primary focus.

The school is situated at the heart of a diverse, town centre community where most families live within walking distance and everyone is valued and encouraged to succeed. The population of the school reflects the population of the area, with the majority of pupils from minority ethnic groups.

The Christian ethos is foundational to the character and life of the school with our distinctive Christian vision and celebration of shared values, such as compassion, thankfulness, courage, peace, community and trust. We are keen to build on our success while continuing to take the school forward.

Despite it's proximity to the town centre, it is less than 4 miles from the Bronte Parsonage Museum and the famous and beautiful moorland paths.

Keighley is a characterful, industrial town, nestled between the charming countryside of Airedale and the Haworth moorland. There are several national parks on your doorstep: Yorkshire Dales National Park 12 miles; Nidderdale AONB 12 miles; Forest of Bowland AONB 18 miles; the Peak District National Park 26 miles; the Lake District 52 miles.

Arranging a visit to Keighley St Andrew's CofE Primary School and Nursery

A tour of the school is available on week commencing the 6th and 13th June 2022. Please email Mrs Anne Dows, School Business Manager at anne.dows@standrews-primary.co.uk for more information.
