What the school says...

Lady Royd Primary aims to develop the abilities of each child to the full by providing a wide range of opportunities and experiences to challenge and motivate. With smaller class sizes, excellent pastoral care and first rate facilities each child receives an excellent education.

Teachers present subject matter in imaginative ways, employing a wide variety of teaching styles and resources which capture the imagination of each child and encourages them to think for themselves, to question and debate.

Became a free school in September 2013, with a non-selective entrance policy. There are two classes of around 28 in each year group; the school has tripled in size since becoming a free school. Although there is a nursery on site which is physically joined, be aware that it is legally separate and therefore offers no automatic or direct entry to the school.
