About Us

Tickton C of E Primary School is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England School and maintains strong links with its local churches. Our ethos is based on strong Christian values and the need to
work for peace and justice; our five key values are love, respect, forgiveness, care and trust.

These values have continued to serve the school and its changing community well as everything we do in school is underpinned by our Christian ethos which permeates all that we undertake and achieve. Ministers and other representatives from both churches in the village are regular visitors to the school and are valued members of the Governing Body. Representatives from the local church run a successful lunch-time activity based Christian group for our Key Stage 2 children, which has seen them involved in local and national church events. At various times throughout the school year we hold services for the children and their families in the local churches, the community or in school.

At the present time there are 219 children on roll aged 4 – 11 with the majority coming from Tickton and the surrounding villages of Weel, Routh and Eske although more children from Beverley and the outlying villages have been joining the school; we now have 36% of our school population choosing to join us from outside our catchment area.
