Roots to grow, Wings to fly

A very warm welcome to Trinity Academy Eppleby Forcett and Middleton Tyas. We hope that you find it useful. Do let us know if you would like us to add further information.

We are unique in the way our schools operate. Although, we are technically two separate schools we actually operate as one! The schools are 8 miles apart, both situated in rural villages in North Yorkshire. The Eppleby Forcett building is very small with two classrooms and a small hall. For this reason, we made the decision to teach our youngest children on this site and have adapted the environment to suit all our EYFS children including a pre-school from age 2. The Middleton Tyas site is a modern building built in 2004. Here we have 6 classrooms with single form entry classes from Year 1 to Year 6. We have a bus company who transport children between sites before and after school, staggered opening times and full wrap around care at both sites to facilitate access. Our schools provide a safe place of learning – a happy sanctuary for children where EVERY unique individual will be nurtured to grow and flourish, to achieve their full potential with confidence.

We would love to show you around and look forward to seeing you soon.

We have 2 Open Days at Eppleby coming up and a couple of tours at Middleton Tyas.
