Kirk Hammerton Church of England Primary School is a primary school located in Kirk Hammerton, a small village off the A59 road between Harrogate and York in North Yorkshire, England. It currently educates around 40 pupils[1] under the Executive Head Teacher Miss Emma Miller, (in post since September 2011). Miss Miller splits her time between Kirk Hammerton and a nearby North Yorkshire primary school, Staveley Community Primary School; the two schools are in partnership meaning they have separate governing bodies and a joint governing body. The school has been housed in its present building since 1975 but the original schoolhouse (now called 'Glebe Cottage' and situated in the north-east corner of the churchyard) dates back to an agreement made on 27 October 1820 between the Vicar, William Metcalfe and the Squire, William Thompson.[2] It is affiliated with St John the Baptist church, Kirk Hammerton in the Anglican Diocese of Leeds.[3]
