Welcome to Goldsborough!

Welcome to Goldsborough CE (VC) Primary School. Our school is situated in the picturesque village of Goldsborough, on the outskirts of Knaresborough.

We admit pupils from Goldsborough village itself, Knaresborough, the outlying villages of Allerton, Hopperton, Coneythorpe, Flaxby and also from further afield.

We look forward to welcoming your child to our school, where pupils are at the centre of everything that we do. We are incredibly proud of what we achieve in our school- our inclusive ethos and warm, family atmosphere, our three residential visits during each pupil's time with us, our active choir, sports teams and pupil councils, not to mention excellent academic performance. The list goes on!

This website provides a wealth of information relating to the aims, ethos and organisation of Goldsborough C.E. School. If you have any questions or would like to see our school in action, please do not hesitate to contact the school office to arrange an appointment. 

I look forward to meeting you,

Mr Matt Shillito
