Welcome to Topcliffe CofE Academy



At Topcliffe C of E, our motto is `Growing, believing, achieving together’ and we pride ourselves in sharing this with the children every day.

There is something very special about our school and we all feel incredibly proud of it. The children describe being at Topcliffe Academy as ‘being part of a school family’.

As headteacher of Topcliffe C of E Academy, I feel privileged to work with such keen learners, both children and staff, and to be well supported by an enthusiastic governing body who work hard to ensure the best for everyone in our school.

At Topcliffe Academy, we are all passionate about sport and our sporting teams achieve highly in local competitions.  We provide a range of after school clubs to give children extra sporting time! We also love music and this is reflected in our high quality productions. We look for any opportunities to enjoy extra music, whether it’s through maths and science or when we spend time together in Collective Worship. We have specialist sport and music teachers that encourage the children to be active and enthusiastic.

We hope you will feel when you visit Topcliffe C of E Academy that it is a truly special place to learn and see why people choose to come to our school.

Mrs Abigail Clay
