Welcome to Lord Deramore’s

I am incredibly privileged and proud to welcome you to our school website.

Founded in 1795 and located next to the University of York, Lord Deramore’s Primary is a very special school that has gained a well-deserved reputation locally for providing a creative, diverse and inclusive education.

As you explore our website and social media accounts, you will certainly gain a flavour and feel for the broad, vibrant and child-centred curriculum that we are proud to offer.

Unfortunately, at present, we are unable to offer any tours of our school due to Covid restrictions. We are looking at various options to provide prospective parents with the important opportunity to get a sense of the school, both the physical building and our school ethos. This will be reviewed over the October half term and information will be updated on our website and social media. 

Lord Deramore’s Primary School is a maintained school within the City of York Council local authority.

I would also recommend that you read our recently-created prospectus which outlines the culture, vision and values of our unique school.
