Welcome to the Forest of Galtres Anglican Methodist Primary School

 

 Welcome to our school!  

At Forest of Galtres we are ‘dedicated to excellence’.  All staff work hard to provide a rich, diverse and exciting learning environment in a warm, caring community built around our core values of Love, Friendship, Forgiveness and Hope.  Our school has a distinctive Christian ethos which reflects its uniqueness 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.

 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 spacious, purpose-built site was established in 1986 to replace the Victorian schools in Shipton, Newton and Tollerton. It is 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.

Personal visits are always welcomed: if you would like to see us in action please contact the office to arrange this. 

We look forward to getting to know you and your family,
 
Mrs Allyson Buckton
Headteacher
