Looking for a primary school place for September 2022?


If so, come to one of our open afternoons!

We're hosting two:

  • Thursday 14 October 2021, 4.00 – 5.00 pm
  • Monday 08 November 2021, 3.00 – 4.00 pm


There's no need to book an appointment - just turn up on the day. It's after school for Covid reasons, but teachers will still be around to direct you around school and answer any questions you may have. Watch this Leeds guide to applying for a place.


Scholes (Elmet) Primary School is proud to be a central part of the village community. It's a modern, well equipped, spacious community school which has been a part of Scholes for over a century. Ofsted (2019) judge us to be a good school: 'Across the school, including in the early years, teaching is good. Relationships between staff and pupils are strong. The staff team who, with governors, have high aspirations for the school, have created a happy and harmonious school community. The very caring and nurturing culture is underpinned by positive and respectful relationships.'
