Western Primary School

The Western community is rightly proud that Ofsted recognised our school as outstanding across all areas in June 2018. Western Primary school enjoys a prominent position in the heart of Harrogate´s vibrant Cold Bath Road community, just minutes from Valley Gardens, RHS Harlow Carr, The Stray and the town centre.

The school´s ethos, driven by an excellent leadership team, has led to its reputation as one of Harrogate´s flagship primaries. Over the last few years, Western has won a number of awards, including the prestigious International School Award.
