About Us

Thank you very much for taking an interest in our school.  Selecting a school for your child can be a difficult task.  There are many aspects to take into consideration, both educational and social, but it is a choice only you can make, because only you can know what best suits your child.  By browsing our website we hope that some questions you may have about Sessay Church of England Primary School will be answered.

We think our children are bright, caring, enthusiastic, confident and well-balanced individuals who work together towards common goals.  We believe it is vital to fully extend our pupils’ capabilities, igniting an enthusiasm for learning that will stay with them for life.  Each child is welcomed in to our school and is nurtured as an individual to enable them to reach their full potential.

After visiting our website we hope that you can get a feel for the life and values here at Sessay.  However, I would encourage you to come and pay us a visit so that you can meet the staff and pupils.

I am the Executive Head Teacher of Sessay Church of England Primary School and I split my time between Husthwaite and Husthwaite Church of England Primary School. I enjoy spending time with the children and am privileged to have a role that allows me to work in two small schools with wonderful, hard working and caring children, staff and communities. Please contact the school to make an appointment or to ask any questions.

Our school is situated in the attractive village of Sessay close to the market town of Thirsk. It consists of a beautiful old building which contains the school office and four brand new classrooms. There is also a playground, school field and a special Early years outdoor area which is accessible all year round.

Our school is a Church of England School with a distinctive ethos and close links to the village church, which is right next door to the school. We aim to provide an exciting and stimulating place for our children to learn within a happy, caring Christian community that will give our pupils a fantastic foundation for the rest of their lives.
