About our school
Bilton Grange Primary School is a school for children aged 4 to 11 years old. It has around 320 pupils on roll and 11 classrooms: two classes in Foundation Stage, three Year 1/2 mixed-age classes, three Year 3/4 mixed-age classes and three Y5/6 mixed-age classes. It is situated on the northern side of Harrogate and is a larger than average and very popular school. Having opened in 1919, the school has retained many of its original features but has a modern extension to the side including a new canteen built in 2016. We have an independent private nursery on site as well as facilities for before and after school care. The school community has worked incredibly hard to make sure that our building provides a 21st Century education. The school has smartboards in every classroom; a well-equipped computer suite with 25 PC’s, over 30 ipads, and small number of laptops. The school has made investments in developing the outdoor learning areas of the school: Tolly’s Garden, an outdoor drama stage, play trail and a multi-skills area.
