Carlton Miniott Primary School, Thirsk

Welcome to Carlton Miniott Community Primary School

Our school is situated in the attractive village of Carlton Miniott close to the market town of Thirsk. It consists of the original old Victorian School with more modern hall and classrooms attached. It has two playgrounds and a lovely big field for the children to play on in the summer.

Our school is a Community School which aims to provide and exciting and stimulating place for our children to learn. As well as the National Curriculum we provide a wealth of other in-school and out of school learning opportunities for our children.

This website will provide you with lots of information about our school but we would be very pleased to show you round so don’t hesitate to contact the school and make an appointment. I look forward to meeting and working with you.
