Where is Cayton School?

The school is situated on the outskirts of the seaside resort of Scarborough on the East Coast of Yorkshire. It serves the catchment area of Cayton, Osgodby, Lebberston and Gristhorpe, although children come to us from other areas too.

If your child is about to join us for the first time, we welcome you warmly as parents and look forward to a happy and successful association over the coming years. If you already have a child in our school, we are pleased to renew the links between us. Clearly, as a parent, this is an important time for you. Choosing a school is an important milestone in any family’s history. There will be many fears, thoughts, questions and hopes that you carry at this time.
 
Why choose Cayton School?
 
First of all I can assure you that every effort will be made by ALL the staff in school to produce a happy and secure atmosphere in school with mutual respect shown by everyone in our school family.
           Secondly, we strive to create a learning environment where every child is able to reach their full potential and develop their personalities. We attempt to achieve the very best for your children in educational, moral, spiritual and physical development. Confidence in a good school comes from knowing and understanding what happens within it.
           We hope that through class assemblies, educational and social functions you will soon get to know the members of our school team.
