About Us

Skipton Girls’ High School is a specialist Engineering and STEM Academy located in the heart of Skipton, a vibrant market town in North Yorkshire, recently voted as one of the best places to live in the UK. 

The Academy serves the local community within North Yorkshire and surrounding districts which cross into Lancashire and West Yorkshire.

The Academy is a successful 11-18 selective state school of 800 students recognised as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted two times in succession. Whilst the school is selective on entry to Year 7, Post 16 is comprehensive with girls joining us from over 20 different secondary schools across the region.

The majority of the school is housed in traditional buildings, however, on the 3rd December 2015 we were delighted to open our exciting new £1.8 million STEM centre. The centre provides us with innovative learning spaces built around the concept of enquiry based learning.
