Headteacher's latest Blog and welcome
Selby High School is a fantastic place to work and learn. We are not just another school; we are a thriving, successful, vibrant and energetic community demonstrating a common purpose - to ensure the very best for each and every one of our students. We are a school with a distinct ethos that recognises every student has their own individual strengths, gifts and talents; our aim is to ensure that these are all developed to their full potential. We look for excellence in all aspects of learning. I hope you find our website informative and gain a real insight into the amazing experiences and successes of our students.
I believe Selby High School is a truly excellent school; it is a place where staff are committed and proud to work, a place which Governors and parents, carers and guardians are proud to support and a school to which students are proud to belong.
Our examination results speak for themselves, year on year the best in Selby. We are striving for excellence in all that we do and the work we have undertaken, our successes have been acknowledged and praised by both Ofsted, the SSAT and HMI. Our academic achievements have resulted in the DfE granting the school a double specialism status.
