Athelstan is a three-form entry primary school, set in extensive grounds. As well as having multiple playgrounds and a huge playing field, we also have a number of stunning outdoor learning areas, including the Enchanted Garden and Creation Station, where pupils are able to take part in ’Forest School’ activities.
Our pride and joy is ‘Buster’, an actual double decker London bus, who sits in the playground, having been lovingly converted into a library for our pupils to enjoy.
Athelstan is proud to have achieved a number of quality marks, including the Primary Science Gold Mark, the Gold Sports’ Mark and the Silver Arts’ Mark, which recognises the high quality of our provision in the Arts.
For years, we have been a Read Write Inc Model School and we have also been granted Achievement for All Lead School status, the only school of this type in the Yorkshire and Humberside region.
