EducationLike many traditional English villages, Sherburn in Elmet has its own schools, which are the centre of community life. In fact, it goes one better than most, with a choice of two primary schools. Children at Saxon Gardens can choose between Sherburn Huntgate Community Primary or Athelstan Community Primary, both of which are within easy reach of the development and both of which boast ‘Good’ ratings in their recent OFSTED reports.
All too often, living in a village means that older children face a longer trip to school, but here Sherburn excels once again. The village is lucky enough to have its own high school, Sherburn High, a Specialist Science School, which is within walking distance of the development
