The school is closely linked with St Andrew's Church, which is adjacent to the school premises.
It is a Grade I listed building. The Church dominates the village of Kildwick & Farnhill and their is evidence that a church has existed on the current site since the time of the Domesday Survey in 1086.
The school regularly has Collective Worship and services throughout the Christian calendar in the Church and this is usually led by the Rev. Julie Bacon or Mrs Kathryn Morris who is a Foundation Governor.
The Church is also used as a valuable teaching resource within the wider school curriculum.
Church and school run a bell ringing club called 'mini ringers' and this can be accessed through the link below.
Church of England schools are established primarily for the communities they are located in. They are inclusive and serve equally those who are of the Christian faith, those of other faiths and those with no faith.
A core desire that we have found expressed in many ways is for ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10). It is about ‘educating the whole person’, what the 1988 Education Reform Act (in a programmatic statement that remains in force and is deservedly influential) sees as physical and intellectual development united with spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
