A message from the Head of School…

This term children from Year 1-Year 6 have been learning dance at after school club with Mrs Eddon and Miss Wilkinson. On Saturday 23rd November the children performed their dance at the Yorkshire Dance Festival at York University. The festival lasts four days with around 1200 young dancers from primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and community dance groups across the region performing. Each school choreographed and performed a 5 minute dance piece in response to the theme, ‘Reflections’. Haxby Road performed an amazing routine to the song ‘Flashlights’. A huge thank you to Mrs Eddon and Miss Wilkinson for their effort and making sure this event went flawlessly! Well done to the children for behaving so well for the duration of the event and for their exceptional performance.

We have some dance stars of the future!


This half term the children have been developing their art skills and knowledge. The children would really like to show you their art work. We think you will be really impressed!

On Wednesday 4th December at 3:00pm the upper hall will be open for you to see the children’s art work. We will be providing hot chocolates and biscuits for you as a winter treat!
