We are proud to welcome you to Canon Sharples School. The special atmosphere which exists here is based on the fact that we are a Christ centred school. The caring, understanding, love and support for each other is present in all that we do and all that we strive to do. Canon sharples School was established following the amalgamation of two well established schools - St John the Baptist, New Springs and St Stephen’s, Whelley.

In 2005 we moved into our brand new, state of the art, building with beautiful views of Haigh Country Park. We are pleased to offer large and well equipped classrooms with shared resource areas which allow for an exciting and stimulating curriculum. We have 12 classrooms, a purpose built nursery, a large hall, library, ICT suite and a unique ‘street’.

Education is a partnership between home and school and we have wonderful support from parents, the Church and our local community. We have much to celebrate and we are delighted to welcome visitors. Our children enjoy school, achieve well and, as one child told and Ofsted Inspector, when it comes to the teachers ‘It’s hard to decide which one you like best!’


Canon Sharples is a Christ centred school that aims to place the curriculum within a Christian setting. We hope, in such a way, to inspire our pupils to grow in a personal understanding of all that it means to be human through the acquisition of skills, beliefs, attitudes and values.

We aim to be a school where all can achieve and become happy, confident, well motivated and independent learners. We aim to encourage our pupils to enrich both their own lives and the lives of others by the application of all that they have learned.
