Goathland Primary School is an attractive school catering for children from age 4 to 11 years. Originally built at the beginning of the 1800's it was tastefully modernised and extended in the 1970's. The building is situated at the edge of the village of Goathland surrounded largely by beautiful moorland. There is a hard surfaced playground which is marked out for netball, a grass area and a small garden, which is usually tended by the children themselves.


Internally the school building comprises of two large classrooms and a shared area used as a Library and for Assemblies, and a kitchen. The children are taught in two classes by motivated and dedicated teachers, all of whom have high expectations of pupil behaviour and achievement.



Goathland Primary School remember those that gave their lives during WW1

Last year the children planted 12 Oak trees in the village to remember the 12 soldiers from Goathland who lost their lives during WW1. Each oak tree now has a metal Fallen Soldier Silhouette Standing guard. The children have placed a poppy on each of the memorials along with the soldiers details as a mark of respect.

Centenary Tree Planting

Our children planted oak trees as a lasting tribute to the 12 villagers who lost their lives in World War 1.



Thank you to Mike Bennet for his gift of handmade replica soldier figures which represent the Young Heroes lost from Goathland village in WW1. The children are thrilled to have one each and as a school we intend to complete the centenary walk in the near future to see the full size figures.
