Ermysted's Grammar School
Welcome to Ermysted’s Grammar School’s website

The school serves the families in Skipton and the surrounding area, including the beautiful area of the Yorkshire Dales. We are a selective boys' grammar school and although the maintenance of high levels of achievement is an important core purpose of the school, we also recognise we play an important role in developing the creative and cultural interests of our students. Further details can be found in our Prospectus.


At Ermysted's Grammar School we are committed to safeguarding and meeting the needs of all our students. The school follows the guidance and protocols outlined by the NYCC safeguarding board. Our Child Protection Policy is available here. If you have concerns over Safeguarding please contact Mrs H Simms (
