An Outstanding Church School

Mrs Cowling will be absent from school due to a planned knee operation from Monday the 30th October returning after a phased recovery towards the later part of the half term.

Mrs Cairns will be deputising in her absence and Mrs Cowling will remain in close contact with the school.

Bishop Monkton School is a small primary school catering for children aged between two years and eleven years of age. The school is situated in the centre of the picturesque village of Bishop Monkton, a popular village within easy reach of many North Yorkshire towns and cities, as well as the North Yorkshire Dales and Moors. The village is also convenient for the major road networks.


The school consists of a spacious main building which opened in 1970 and a state-of-the-art extension built in 2004. All classrooms have excellent ICT facilities including interactive whiteboards. The school has a large playing field to the rear of the building together with an enclosed wildlife garden and pond. To the front of the school are a grassed agility trail and a hard surface play area.


The surroundings of the school are idyllic, offering a superb environment to enhance the children's studies.

At present the school is organised into five classes:



2 & 3 year olds / Reception  


Year 1 / Year 2



Year 3 / Year 4  


Year 5 



Year 6
