About Us

Cornholme School was built in 1899, and has been central to the local community since then. The school is a Community Maintained Primary School for day pupils aged 3 years - 11 years. We are fully funded by Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council, Our Local Authority. 

Children and staff are encouraged to achieve their full potential intellectually and personally in a happy, caring and purposeful way. Through raising self esteem in a safe school environment, we hope that all our children will become valued members of a caring society. Our mission statement is designed to reflect this ethos in a way even our youngest pupils can understand: 

'Together we will learn and grow'

As a school we are committed to: 

  • Laying the foundations for a lifelong love of learning in all our children
  • Helping all members of Cornholme School to persevere and believe in their abilities
  • Being involved in the wider community of Cornholme, Todmorden and beyond
