Malsis School was a co-educational independent pre-prep and preparatory school for pupils aged three to thirteen years. It was situated in the village of Crosshills, in North Yorkshire, England. It boasted a 3 km mountain bike trail, swimming pool, rifle range and 40 acres of grounds.

Malsis School was founded in 1920[1] and closed due to falling pupil numbers on 10 December 2014, with the final assembly starting at 11 am and concluding at 1 pm.[2] It is currently in administration with Ernst and Young, Leeds.

In January 2015 The Old Malsis Association (OMA) was formed to represent the views of school alumni from down the years. The Association is actively supporting initiatives to support the re-establishment of a school at Malsis Hall as a viable & long-term proposition. The OMA community site, [3] malsis.org was launched in April 2015.
