Welcome to Easingwold School


Easingwold School is a highly successful and sustainable 11-18 comprehensive school which serves the needs of its community.  It provides a largely academic sixth form curriculum as well as structured opportunities for both students and staff to enrich and develop their skills and qualifications.

Our overarching aim is to inspire, challenge and support young people in order to help them succeed now and in the future.  We are committed to making our school a welcoming and purposeful place where all people feel safe, valued and able to achieve their best.  These are the values which Easingwold seeks to promote and uphold in all aspects of school life. These values were chosen by the students at Easingwold School and encapsulate our ethos and vision for their experiences at school and beyond.

About us

Easingwold School is a mixed 11-18 comprehensive school situated on the edge of an attractive market town some 15 miles north of York. The school has over 1300 students on roll, including 230 in the sixth form. Our aim is to provide the best possible education and care for our students so that they become lifelong learners, confident and able to thrive in a fast-changing global community. The school is a caring, vibrant and welcoming place to learn, and Ofsted recently reported that our students “speak with warmth and pride of the enjoyment they get from coming to school” where they “feel safe and well supported”. Expectations at the school are high, with all students encouraged to maximise their potential. The school has a history of achieving excellent results with young people of all abilities; in fact, we were one of just 18 schools to receive an award from the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust for our outstanding attainment in the 2009 GCSE exams. In addition to being a Specialist Language College, Easingwold School has International School status and has recently become an International Baccalaureate World School. Students have the opportunity to study French, German, Spanish, Russian, Japanese and Mandarin Chinese, and to follow the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in the sixth form. In 2009 69% of Year 11 students from the school achieved a GCSE grade A*-C in a modern foreign language compared with only 36% in North Yorkshire as a whole and 32% in England, including independent schools. We have a partnership with a school in Sri Lanka, and students regularly take part in overseas visits and activities with an international dimension. The school offers students a wide range of extra-curricular activities, including sport, music and drama, and the standards they achieve are very high. The excellence of extra-curricular activities is underpinned by the house system which ensures that all students who wish to represent their houses have opportunities to do so. Specialist Status: Language College
