A Village School in the Heart of York

Welcome to The Minster School York – a leading co-educational independent school for pupils aged 4-13. A day preparatory school, we educate only 180 pupils, including the girl & boy choristers of York Minster. The school stands proudly opposite, Gothic icon, York Minster, where our learned founder, Paulinus, was the first Bishop of York in 625AD.

“There’s a warm, village school-feel, bang in the heart of the beautiful old city of York,” said one parent.

Growing together, developing excellence & rooted in faith.
