It lies to the north-west of the town of Nelson in north-east Lancashire and north of Burnley, twelve minutes drive away.

Its location in a rural setting has wonderful views of open countryside, and it may be passed by walkers following the “Pendle Way” long distance path. It lies adjacent to the renowned St. Mary’s Church, Newchurch often visited by tourists to the area.

It is a two form school, currently with 48 children, who are taught separately in the two key stages. It has a secure playground and an Early Years Outdoor Play area.

A new class room for Key Stage 2 children was constructed in 2008 on the back of the school and an extension to the Key Stage 1 class room on the side of the main building.
