Colburn Community Primary School sits on the edge of Catterick Garrison, the largest Garrison town in Europe. The Garrison itself boasts a 100 acre nature reserve and is surrounded by the outstanding natural beauty of the North Yorkshire Dales National Park. Transport connections are excellent, with the A1(M) just 5 miles away. We enjoy the benefits of much recent community development in the Garrison and close relationships with both military and civilian organisations in the area.

Richmondshire is recognised as one of the most beautiful areas within the Yorkshire Dales and lies within easy reach of the North Yorkshire Moors, Pennines and Lake District. Covering over 500sqm, it is actually one of the most sparsely populated areas in the country with plenty of space for someone wanting to live and work in an area of outstanding natural beauty. 

Rated by Ofsted as Good (2017), we are an open, friendly school providing an environment which enables children to feel safe, happy and to develop an enjoyment of learning.

Resilient and innovative, you must have the ability to raise standards, improve the quality of teaching and learning and work well with the wider school community, including the Garrison cluster, to raise aspirations and improve parental engagement.

We are rightly proud of our school and need a Headteacher who has the experience, skills and vision to shape our improvement plan, oversee the continued development of our curriculum and, above all, ensure pupils make the best possible progress over time.

To be successful, you must be able to provide strong, clear leadership, maximise pupil outcomes, inspire and raise aspiration across the whole school community. In addition, you must be able to analyse and communicate key data and effectively manage the budget.

We believe we are a school with unique challenges and opportunities. If you are ready for this challenge you’ll be rewarded by working with a truly progressive and supportive governing body and dedicated staff, in an environment which positively engages parents and inspires happy enthusiastic children.

We would love you to come for a visit and experience our unique school for yourself. We have planned times/dates when visits can be accommodated. These are:
Thursday 7 March at 13.00
Monday 11 March at 11.00
