High Peak Federation

On behalf of children, staff and Governors of the High Peak Federation, welcome to our website.

Our Federation is made up of Newtown and Thornsett Primary Schools, situated in New Mills, High Peak, Derbyshire.

Our Ethos is to provide a stimulating and exciting School environment where all children feel valued and safe; creativity and ideas can flourish; and children can maximise their progress. We provide a varied and creative curriculum, which engages each child, and enthuses a desire to learn and be caring and respectful of others.

You are welcome to visit us anytime - please get in touch if you want to learn more.

You can also access key Federation via our Mobile App. Once installed search for 'High Peak Federation'.
