Our Community

At Lord Deramore’s we feel privileged to be part of a community which works together for the benefit of our pupils and their families.

Nearly half of our families have links with the university, with one or both parents working or studying  there. Our children benefit from working with the university both in terms of resources and pupil  experiences including science, engineering, robotics and music. We are proud to be one of the most diverse primary schools in the local region, with over sixty nationalities represented within our school family.

After leaving Year 6, the vast majority of our pupils move to either Archbishop Holgate’s or Fulford School, both of which are outstanding secondary schools. Some also move onto local independent schools. We have strong relationships with all feeder schools and work proactively with them around transition from primary to secondary. We have highly effective working relationships with numerous primary schools across the city and regularly work on collaborative projects to benefit the children of Lord Deramore’s and York in general.

Lord Deramore’s supports working families by offering wrap-around care during term time on site. Breakfast club is available from 8am and after-school provision is available until 5.45pm. We foster strong relationships between home and school as we see this as a vital key to unlocking each child’s potential. Our Parent-Teacher Association is highly visible within school and supports our work through many annual events and projects. By working together, we aim to provide the very best start in life for all of our children.
