  • NURSERY PROVISION
    The Governors of the Upper Wharfedale Primary Federation are delighted to be able to announce that we have published a consultation document regarding the offer of pre-school nursery provision for the Federation. This is in response to clear local need and parental demand: it allows us both to support local families and provide the pre-school experience our children will enjoy before they start in Reception at any of our Federation schools. We are very excited about this initiative and are busy planning our resources and Nursery unit which will be housed in the former Children’s Centre at Grassington. You may well see activity over the summer holidays as we prepare. Click here to view the consultation document; please click here for a booking form. To get in touch, email: admin@grassington.n-yorks.sch.uk Exciting times!

  • LEEDS MORRIS MEN
  • For the past 68 years, Leeds Morris Men have performed the dance The Rose in the village of Kettlewell at 10 am on the late May Bank Holiday Monday. We do it to commemorate the members we have lost, celebrate the morris, and sustain a venerable tradition.
  • In 2020, the coronavirus lockdown, of course, meant that we were unable to be in Kettlewell in the flesh. Instead, we marked the occasion by each performing a solo jig version of The Rose at home, and bringing the team together through the magic of technology!
