Message from the Principal
As Principal of Selby High School, I’m delighted to welcome you to our website. In these pages I hope you will get a flavour of what a great place Selby High is to work and learn. We are an inclusive secondary school for boys and girls aged 11 to 16, committed to providing an outstanding education to all.
A talented and committed team of teachers and support staff work exceptionally well with parents, carers and governors to provide a high quality education for students which secures outstanding outcomes, year in year out.
At Selby High School we ensure that every individual reaches their academic and personal potential, no matter what their starting point. We combine a strong focus on the core areas of literacy, numeracy and science, with a rich and engaging curriculum which offers a broad variety of exciting courses, including the full range of art, technology, sport-related and performing arts based subjects. Learning is carefully structured around the knowledge, skills and understanding required both for success in examinations, and preparation for life in the modern world.
We aim to develop resilience and independence in our students, acknowledging that learning from our mistakes is all part of making great progress. Through regular assessment of learning we are able to inform students and their parents and carers of strengths and areas for development at regular points throughout the year.
