Malsis School located at a mansion known as Malsis Hall in the village of Crosshills, in North Yorkshire, England, was a co-educational independent pre-prep and preparatory school for pupils aged three to 13 years. The school was founded in 1920,[1] and closed due to falling pupil numbers in 2014. [2] Facilities at the school included 3 km mountain bike trail, 9-hole golf course, swimming pool, rifle range and 40 acres of grounds.

The school closed on 10 December 2014, when the final assembly started at 11 am and concluded at 1 pm.[2]The next day the school trust went into administration with Ernst & Young, Leeds, and now having fully paid off its debts has passed into creditors voluntary liquidation to be finally wound up.[citation needed]

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.[3]

Malsis Hall and its grounds have been sold to Seddon Construction, which plans to return it to some form of community use.[citation needed] Proprietors Jonathan and Jamie Seddon were both former Malsis pupils in the 1980s.[citation needed]
