Our curriculum is designed to challenge students to improve their Resilience, Aspiration and in doing so become even more successful.

At York High School we believe that homework is essential to consolidate the learning which takes place within school and is set using Google Classrooms. All students and parents are provided with a login to ensure that they can access the homework which has been set. We provide a Homework club after school in the Library each evening for Year 7 students who prefer to complete their homework in school where help can be provided as necessary.
You can find out more detail about our subjects here. You can also see exactly what our students are learning here.
