About the School

The school website provides you with a real flavour of life at the school.

Ermysted’s is one of England’s oldest schools and for over 525 years the School has sought to provide a first class education to the boys of Skipton and the surrounding areas, regardless of their background. Much has changed since its foundation in the fifteenth century, but the school has never wavered from its original aim to provide an exciting and challenging environment in which to develop ‘learned and wise men’.

Academic success is important but so is the development of character, resilience and self-confidence. At Ermysted’s staff take the development of the whole child very seriously. The school prides itself on its nurturing and inclusive community, and it works hard to create an environment where every boy feels valued and supported to achieve their very best.

Opportunities abound in an extensive programme of extra-curricular activities, with boys actively encouraged to broaden their personal interests, develop new skills and pursue a healthy lifestyle. From the rugby field to the stage, from the concert hall to the debating chamber, school students commit themselves fully to the pursuit of excellence and develop the social and personal skills that will serve them so well in later life.

Ermysted’s is a distinguished and ancient institution and incredibly proud of the students’ achievements and abilities.
