About Us

Welcome to Forest of Galtres Anglican Methodist Primary School

Here at Forest of Galtres Primary School we are committed to nurturing your children as they grow through school.  All staff work together to provide a rich and exciting learning environment built around our school vision and our core values of Care, Creativity, Courage, Collaboration and the Christian Faith. Our school has a distinctive ethos as the only Anglican Methodist primary school in North Yorkshire: this is shown in the very high level of care that we show towards everyone in our school.


In 2016 we chose to convert to academy status and since December 2016 we have been part of the Hope Sentamu Learning Trust family of schools alongside Manor CE Academy and Poppleton Ousebank Primary School.

This summer we have worked on developing our indoor and outdoor Early Years Foundation Stage provision and we are now admitting children aged 3 years as part of the 30hrs entitlement for families; from September 2017 Shipton Preschool and Toddlers have also been based on site.  In April 2019 this became our school Nursery, providing education and care for children aged 2 years and above.

We are a busy and friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have, or if you require any paper copies of any documentation.
