Parish Church CE Primary School

Believing and Achieving Together


We are a large rural school, set in the historic market town of Skipton, “Gateway to the Dales,” and easily accessible to Harrogate, Leeds, Bradford and Lancashire.  We recently joined Yorkshire Causeway Schools Trust, who have been working with the school prior to conversion to an academy.  The school has improved significantly over the last few years and we are now able to accept 60 children in each year group and currently have spaces throughout the school.  As a diverse school, we embrace and celebrate the uniqueness of each and everyone.

We are linked with Holy Trinity Church in Skipton and the church works closely with the school both through the governing body and through collective worship and other events. Parish Church of England School also links closely with the wider community in Skipton, which helps to provide our children with values to make them responsible citizens. We have a very active Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) who organise a variety of fun activities throughout the year and also raise funds to provide many extras for the children.

Come and find out for yourself what Parish is really like.  We would be delighted to welcome you to our school.
