About our school

Purston Infant School is not immediately evident from the road it is situated on. The entrance to the school is concealed and the area is relatively secluded. Insignificant ? Innocuous ? Certainly not ! 

You may be surprised to find out that Purston Infant School stands in approximately two  acres of land. The main single storey building comprises a hall, six classrooms, a central shared area and nursery. There is also an administration block sited near the main entrance.

To the south side there is a raised hardcore play area, with markings to assist in imaginative play, seating, and elevated gardens overlooking the school. To the north side there are playing fields and a wildlife conservation area. This area is used for playtimes weather permitting, sports and investigative work within the curriculum.  Hedgerows heavily laden with brambles (ready for jam making in the Autumn Term) are abundant and cover the field perimeter.

Featherstone lies between Wakefield and Pontefract and is close to both the M62 and Al. The school traditionally serves the area south of the Pontefract/ Wakefield railway line and east of Station Lane and Girnhill Lane which includes both rented accomodation and private housing. The majority of children generally move on to St Thomas Church of England Junior School and then on to Featherstone High School.

Once a thriving mining community Featherstone has seen many changes over recent years including the closure of local mines and the development of light industry. As in many areas there is a high percentage of unemployment and many parents are forced to seek work outside the local area. 
















 The entrance to school, although small is both welcoming and inviting. The display area is beautifully presented and changed by the head teacher once a term. It often sets the scene for each terms topic.
