About Us


Welcome to Applegarth Primary School. Our historic building is in the centre of Northallerton in the heart of North Yorkshire. When our school was built in 1909, it was intended to be the model school in the county. It is our goal to make this vision a reality.

At Applegarth we strive to provide a challenging and relevant curriculum that ignites pupils’ love of learning and successfully unlocks the true potential of each child. We have high expectations of all of our learners and recognise that a unique approach is often required to meet the needs of individual learners.

We believe that reflection and resilience should underpin children’s learning in order to promote rounded, productive citizens who are ready to make a positive contribution to society. Our ‘Applegarth Values’ help pupils to develop tolerance, respect diversity and care for others and the world around them in a safe environment. Each child is given the chance to be healthy and happy both mentally and physically.

The learning process is valued and we celebrate effort, attitude and achievement in equal measure. Applegarth is a family where children take pride in themselves and their peers and support one another. Parents/carers, governors and the whole community are active participants in our school’s development.

This is a blog for us to celebrate success and achievement and make connections with the wider world around us.
