Easingwold School is a mixed, comprehensive 11-18 school in Easingwold, North Yorkshire, England. The school has 972 pupils, including the Sixth Form, located on-site. The school's 2016 Ofsted inspection rated the school as inadequate for overall effectiveness, and the school is currently in special measures.[2]


The school moved to its current larger site in 1954 and became a mixed, comprehensive school. The previous school site now houses Easingwold Primary School. In 1994 the Europa Block was added to the school to increase the number of classrooms available, specifically for languages. Since then a new maths block, science block and separate Sixth Form block have been added to the school grounds. In October 2016 the school was placed into special measures after being deemed inadequate.[3] Head Teacher Phil Benaiges was removed from his post, and replaced with Rob Pritchard as Interim Executive Headteacher.[4]
