Break up for Easter Holidays at 2pm

Back to school after the Easter Holidays

Welcome to our school

Here at Forest of Galtres we are committed to ‘Growing and Nurturing Together’. All staff work hard to provide a rich and exciting learning environment built around our core values of Care, Creativity, Courage, Collaboration and the Christian faith. Our school has a distinctive ethos as the only Anglican Methodist School in North Yorkshire. This is demonstrated through the very high level of care and nurture that we show towards everyone in our school. In 2016 we chose to convert to academy status and since September 2016 we have been part of the Hope Learning Trust York family of schools.

Our main aim is to ensure that all our children achieve their full potential in all areas during this very important part of their lives. We are very proud of the educational experiences we provide to help us achieve this.

We are situated in the village of Shipton-by-Beningbrough close to the city of York, with easy access to the York Outer Ring Road and the A19. Our school has a beautiful setting with a large playing field, trees, wildlife area, outdoor play equipment and two playgrounds. Inside we have spacious classrooms, a large hall, library and ICT room.
