School Information


We are a small village primary school with an ideal setting, opposite St. Andrew’s Church, which allows us to work closely with our community. We pride ourselves in being a warm and caring school with a strong Christian ethos which promotes the values of love, peace, kindness and patience. During their time with us, we support our children to become confident and happy learners who feel safe and secure whilst preparing them for the next stage of their education.


Kirkby Malzeard village has had a school since Tudor times. Our older building housed the school (and school house) in the 18th century and is now used by Palm Class. Our main school was built in the 1970s and is the base for Oak Class. We have two additional mobile classrooms, one of which is used for ‘Whizz Kids’ – our exciting before and after school provision. We are very proud of the great facilities we have to offer, especially our library which encourages children to have a love of reading and books.


Kirkby Malzeard School is set in extensive, attractive grounds which incorporate two playgrounds, an outdoor learning area for EYFS/KS1, a large playing field and wildlife garden (complete with an outdoor activities classroom). We promote a love of learning in our school and our children love learning in the outdoors.


As our education system continues to change, at Kirkby Malzeard we rise to the challenges and see them as opportunities to provide the very best for all of our children. We are part of a ‘collaborative partnership’ with St. Nicholas CE School in West Tanfield and also part of the Ripon Rural cluster and the Harrogate Teaching Alliance. By developing strong partnerships and networks between schools our mission is to use our strengths as a group to ensure that enthusiasm, expertise and resources are used effectively and efficiently for every child, providing high quality education whilst still keeping and celebrating the diversity of our individual schools.
