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. We are a happy and caring school where staff and governors work together to promote a family atmosphere where all feel safe, secure and listened to.

Our school is a Community School which aims to provide a stimulating and productive environment where children enjoy to learn. As well as teaching the National Curriculum we provide a wealth of experiences in and out of school which give opportunities for children to develop thier skills, whatever their level of ability. We are very supported by the envolvement of parents in our school and an enthusiastic Friends of School which hold many events throughout the year.

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.

Young Voices 2018
In January this year 36 members of our singing group joined a choir of 5000 other children at Sheffield Arena to take part in the Young Voices Concert. They had spent a term practicing a range of songs including cartoon favourites, pop classics, newly written songs and songs from the past. They performed these with enthusasm and lots of dance moves and actions. The concert also included a range of performers including local artists including Natalie Williams, Magnet and dance from the Urban striders. Everyone involved had a fantastic time.
