Local Community


Easingwold is a small market town in North Yorkshire. It is located 13 miles north of York at the foot of the Howardian Hills. The name of Easingwold is Anglo Saxon in origin. King John had a hunting lodge there and the Royal Forest of Galtres (no longer a forest) surrounded the area.

We have very strong links within our local community and can often be seen out and about in the town.

We celebrate Harvest, Christmas and Easter at two of our local churches and a local church group visit us once a fortnight to take our very popular Open the Book assemblies. We also visit local businesses as part of our curriculum. We also work closely with local charities and organisations such as the British Legion, the Boot Shop and the Easingwold Lions. Lots of our children take part in community events such as the Galtres run, war commemorations and charity events.

There are lots of local facilities that we make use of such as the excellent theatre and sports facilities at the Galtres Centre and the local library. Our Forest School project takes place at the local Scout Hut and we use local parks and woodlands for various lessons.
