Welcome to Greatwood Community Primary and Nursery School

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about our school.  Here at Greatwood Community Primary and Nursery School, children aged 3 to 11 enjoy their learning and flourish in a safe and happy environment. Everyone who plays a part in Greatwood life is very proud of the school and we all strive to maintain it as a fantastic place to learn and a key part of Skipton life.

I am immensely proud and privileged to lead here at Greatwood and to work with our enthusiastic students, ambitious staff, supportive parents and committed Governors. Our children have excellent learning behaviours, are eager to learn and are supported by a team of hard working, talented and dedicated staff. Read more >
