Head's Welcome

Welcome to our website for The Otley and Witnesham Partnership Schools. Otley and Witnesham are both great schools, providing a high quality education for all our pupils.  We are smaller than average village schools set in spacious grounds. We provide a caring environment for children from 4-11 years and hold learning in the highest regard.

Working alongside our families, we strive to provide our children with the tools they will need to achieve academic success, a life-long love of learning and become responsible, respectful and tolerant citizens of the future. We do this through our ‘head’, ‘heart’ and ‘hands’ curriculum which is designed to provide children with a rich knowledge base as well as developing their skills and character. We aim to ensure each and every child at our school is able to fulfil their potential both academically and socially.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find the information you are looking for. Please contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

Best Wishes

Mrs Michaela Harris
Executive Headteacher
