New Road Primary School



Like all schools in the area, we are limited to the amount of children we are allowed to accept in each year group, at New Road this is 30 pupils. Our new reception intakes have been increasing year on year, but over time some families may leave the area and this can create spaces in some year groups.

If you are looking for a school in Sowerby Bridge please do not hesitate to contact our school administrator. We will be happy to discuss potential places in year groups and answer any questions you may have. You are also very welcome to arrange an appointment with the Headteacher so you can come and look around our wonderful school.


New Reception Intake for September

If you have a child who is due to start school in September we encourage you to call us and arrange a convenient time to visit New Road along with your child. It's a great opportunity to see the children and teachers at work in the classrooms and become familiar with our school environment. We work closely with many of of the local pre school providers and offer lots of transition opportunities for the children in the Summer Term before they start school.
