Studying in York

Bootham School is situated in the beautiful and historic city of York. Rich in ancient history; renowned for its exquisite architecture; a national and regional centre for
artistic and intellectual life: York is a flourishing city.

York benefits from its easy proximity to stunning national parks and areas of outstanding natural beauty. It is ideally positioned in the heart of the country with direct rail links of around two hours from London, Edinburgh, Manchester. Manchester, Newcastle and Leeds/Bradford airports are within easy reach and the port of Hull is within a two-hour drive.

Founded by the Romans, the capital of the kingdoms of Northumbria and Jorvik, a flourishing industrial centre for the wool trade in the Middle Ages, a railway hub for Victorian England, home of world famous Rowntree’s and Terry’s chocolates, York in the twenty first century is home to two thriving universities and leading service industries.

It is also a centre of religious life. It is the northern ecclesiastic province of the Church of England, and Quakers have played a central role in the life of the city for centuries.
