Easingwold is a small market town in North Yorkshire. With a population of just under 5,000, it is located about 10 miles north of the City of York, at the foot of the Howardian Hills.

The town, mentioned in the Domesday Book, benefits from its locality to York which has good railway connection to Leeds, Sheffield and Hull as well as all major destinations including a particularly swift service to London. Road connections via the A64 and A1 provide good access to the coast as well as the wider motorway network. 


At Easingwold Community Primary School we aim to equip all our children with the skills and knowledge necessary to flourish in a world in which the only constant is change.

Our central aim is to enable both our children and staff to achieve their potential by providing memorable learning experiences. We have very high expectations of everyone within our school.
