York High School has been through a period of rapid and sustained improvement since its last Ofsted Inspection in 2017. We are a genuine comprehensive school that seeks to maximise the potential of all students. The improvements start with the consistency of a positive behaviour system that has revolutionised the learning environment. This has allowed high quality CPD to increase the quality of Teaching and Learning throughout the school. We have totally rewritten a sequenced and interleaved curriculum based on knowledge and skills and enhanced through our values of Resilience Aspiration and Success. Alongside this we have maintained strong support for our students pastorally. York High School is a special place where ordinary is not enough to be successful, the school and its community pride itself on honesty and transparency.
