Heptonstall School

Heptonstall Junior, Infant and Nursery School is a small, friendly school for children aged three to 11, who are taught in four classes.

The school, at the top of the village on Smithwell Lane, was established in 1879, and was recently given a £1.7 million Government grant for a new extension and a total refurbishment of the main Victorian building.

The new extension houses the foundation unit for nursery and reception children on the ground floor. The modernised old building will include a computer suite, library and three refurbished classrooms. The 2011 Ofsted report said the school was good with outstanding features.

Wrap-around care is provided by Heptonstall Out of School Club, which is open from 7.30am to 9am and from 3.30pm to 6pm in the school hall. The club is led by experienced primary school teacher Karen Mills, and is managed by a committee of parents, chaired by Professor Paul Cooke and Professor Alison Fell.
