About Us

Christ Church CE (VA) Junior School is a small junior school for children aged 7-11, located in the heart of Sowerby Bridge. We have close links with Tuel Lane Infant School which is the feeder school.

The school was built in 1971, replacing the Ellison Memorial School and had a classroom extension in 2004.  The school is housed in a single storey building.  There are 5 classrooms, 3 libraries, a main hall and our own school kitchen where pupils' lunches are cooked.  We are lucky enough to have extensive outdoor grounds which facilitate endless outdoor learning opportunities. These grounds include an expansive area of grass which is used for a variety of sporting activities and  two playgrounds. There is also a wooden activity trail, a tiered vegetable patch and a wildlife area which includes our pond.


As we are a Church of England School, we hold very close links with the local parish. Reverend Canon Angela is a regular presence in school, attending worship and fully supporting the Christian life of the school. She is also our Chair of Governors and so is also involved closely with the overall running of the school.
