It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Mowbray School, and I hope that our website gives you a valuable insight into what we do and how we meet the needs of the children we educate and care for.
Mowbray is a North Yorkshire County Council co-educational special school and has two sites, one in Bedale for pupils aged three years to sixteen years and another in Ripon for pupils aged three years to eleven years. Both sites have a warm and welcoming community of staff and pupils who strive to make each other feel part of our community.
We serve a very large catchment area covering 1,400 square miles from Stockton on Tees to Harrogate, with over 290 pupils currently attending both sites from both rural and urban areas, as well as military bases. Our site in Ripon serves pupils predominantly from the districts of Ripon, Harrogate and Knaresborough.
