aspiring flourishing loving


At Cathedral School we strongly believe in partnership and like to collaborate and work alongside others for the benefits of our children.

Please note that unfortunately some of the partnerships below have not been easy to maintain during the Covid-19 outbreak.

Some of the partnerships we have developed include the following:

Spanish University and L'Aneja

To support us with the provision of Spanish we have developed a successful partnership with the Universidad de Valladolid, Segovia. Through this important link we have been in contact and visited schools in Spain. In addition we annually welcome trainee teachers from their teacher training program who help our pupils develop a wider understanding of the Spanish culture.

One school we have developed a strong partnership is CEIP Fray Juan de la Cruz, Aneja in Segovia. Each year our children get the chance to visit Spain for a week and a return visit from our partner school return to Ripon in the Summer Term. We share a lot of friendship and learning in this partnership.

St Peter's School, Leeds

We have a long and well established partnership with St Peter's CE Primary School in Leeds. St Peter's is an outstanding church school in the heart of Leeds. In our year 5 class our children develop a pen pal connection, share information about where they live and get to visit each other in each school. Our school and St Peter's are in contrasting localities and this work benefits both parties.

St Aidan's

For a number of years we have partnered with St Aidan's in Harrogate for Computing.  St Aidan's is an outstanding high school academy. The technical team offer exceptional support and ensure that we can teach computing with a high quality, effective digital offer.

Diocese of Leeds

One significant partnership is with the Anglican Diocese of Leeds. The school has always had a positive link with the Diocesan Education Team offering to take part in all events and annually entering into a service level agreement with the team to benefit from high quality support and advice.


HART teaching School Alliance

Harrogate and Rural Teaching Alliance is a well established and growing collaborative of 51 member schools and a further 5 strategic partners. The alliance is built on the the core principle of 'Improving Learning for all Pupils through Collaborative Partnerships' and all the member schools work together to achieve this aim.  

Voice 21

We are delighted to have worked with Voice 21 to further embed oracy in our school.  We are part of a growing number of schools who not only recognise the importance of oracy, but are now reflecting and acting on what we can do to improve how oracy is planned for and embedded in every classroom, throughout our school.
