York High School achieved the Healthy Schools Award on 27th May 2009. Since then we have been committed to developing and promoting all aspects of health in our school and the wider community. We have set targets related to healthy eating, physical activity and substance abuse and have made substantial progress in all areas.
In order to continue to make such progress and to enhance the lives of all of our young people, we believe in a holistic community approach, whereby each and every one of us can learn form each other and share our expertise in offering the best possible support network.
Our ethos towards Health is centred around the school mission statement PRIDE:
Respect and friendship
Determination and courage
