The schools admission procedures for North Yorkshire are all contained within their website or you can telephone 01609 533 679 to request printed copies of all the information.

The schools in the Harrogate area generally work to a catchment area. If you contact your local school directly they will be able to tell you if you are within their catchment area, they will also be able to give you details of any open days or their policy for visiting the school.

You may also want to read the school’s most recent OFSTED report to help you make your decision. Here

You may visit and or apply for a place at any school, however the admissions policy will outline who has priority (children with a statement of educational special needs, those with siblings in the school and those within the catchment etc) See your chosen schools website for full details.

The councils website showing catchment areas can be found here

There is no guarantee of getting a place in your preferred (or even second or third choice school) and the information about the appeals procedure can be found here.

Coppice Valley is a unique school – a peaceful oasis of nature, quiet and calm, safely tucked away from the main roads. We are Harrogate’s hidden gem, having a large playing field, wildlife area and meadow.

At Coppice Valley, we are known as the school with heart. Our staff work hard to make sure everyone feels cared for, safe and valued. We treat every child as the remarkable individual they are.

Our vision is to create learners for life – children who are enthused with a love for learning. This all begins in the haven of nature we have on our doorstep, here at Coppice Valley.

At Coppice Valley, our aim is to inspire our pupils to love learning. We believe in the power of education to change lives for the better through learning and meaningful experiences. Good relationships are at heart of our school – our ethos is warm, supportive and family friendly.

Our purpose is to nurture the growth of the whole child – socially, emotionally and academically – during their journey with us at Coppice Valley.

Our curriculum is enriched with experiences and learning that build character, extend cultural knowledge and develop social, moral and spiritual learning. Coppice Valley is unique in our area of Harrogate as we are fortunate to have extensive grounds tucked away from the main roads.  Our curriculum is designed to make good use of our grounds for our pupils’ benefit but also with a focus on supporting our local community e.g. pupils have designed a community garden in the school for our neighbours.

Our Vision of ‘SHINE’ provides the framework for all aspects of school life and underpins the daily experience for everyone in our school. Central to our vision is ensuring that children’s personal development, wellbeing and wider curriculum opportunities are valued as highly as academic progress.

We are dedicated to helping our children grow and develop emotionally, creatively and spiritually, helping them to be the best versions of themselves and preparing them for their futures in a diverse world.

The needs of our children always come first and we work closely with parents building positive relationships that help contribute to the work we do.

Visiting our school is the ideal way to experience and explore our vision for yourself. All visits are personalised to suit visitors and can be arranged by contacting the school office. If you have a child who is starting school in September 2022, please contact the office, 01423569684, to arrange a visit on one of our tour dates.

In the meantime take a look at the video on our website to give you an insight into life at St Peter’s.
