Bootham Junior School is situated on the outskirts of the beautiful and historic city of York. With purpose built classrooms, outdoor play areas and plenty of green space, the school provides pupils from ages 3-11 the space and environment to thrive. Classes are small to ensure each child benefits from individual attention and support and standards are high, both academically and pastorally.
As a Quaker school, Bootham emphasises responsibility for self and for others - with a premium on integrity, honesty and trustworthiness from an early age.
Through a lively curriculum and a varied range of activities, dedicated staff strive to embed the necessary skills for the educational challenges that pupils will face in the years ahead.
Bootham has an excellent reputation for its pastoral care and maintaining the health and well-being of pupils is extremely important. Staff work with parents and guardians and welcome active support and involvement. Good work habits, co-operation and tolerance create the happy, family atmosphere for which the School is known.
Comments below are from the latest Independent Schools Inspectorate report.
"Throughout the school, the pupils' spiritual development is outstanding. Pupils of all ages absorb the school's Quaker ethos which embodies the key spiritual principles of unity, peace and tolerance. In doing so, pupils, including the youngest, develop into kind, compassionate human beings with a keen sense of service and duty to others and a firm moral compass. From the central Quaker tenet of looking for the best in each individual, they gain self-awareness and from the school's emphasis on celebrating and cherishing individuality, they gain high levels of self-confidence and self-esteem, whilst remaining strongly empathetic to others."
