Welcome to York High School




I have been Headteacher of York High School since we opened for the first time in September 2007. In the last 7 years our school has developed a growing reputation for the improvement in results of our young people, the care and support and guidance we offer and our school ethos as a specialist Sports College.

York High School is a school which is very pleased to play a significant role in our local community. We have very strong partnerships with our primary schools, York College and a range of other organisations. Through these links we have developed an educational community in which all young people can succeed, feel valued and aspire to fulfil their dreams and ambitions.

Our Pride Mission Statement founded on the values of the Olympic and Paralympic Games is at the very heart of what we do and encourages our young people and staff to strive to be the very best they can be. This is reflected in the relationships between pupils, staff and parents as well as the range of activities and opportunities we offer every day in our school.

I hope you find our website helpful and informative. Further information about York High School can be found on our Facebook Page and via our Twitter Account (links to the right). Families considering applying to our school are always welcome to contact us to arrange a visit to our school to see it in action.
