Huntington School is a highly successful comprehensive school in the northern suburbs of the historic city of York. Our core purpose is to inspire confident learners who will thrive in a changing world. Founded in 1966 and with the more recent accolade of becoming one of the country’s first and leading Research Schools we have established an enviable reputation for our expertise and innovation in teaching and learning, coupled with our school values of respect, honesty, and kindness. Huntington is an 11-18 co-educational comprehensive school with a Sixth Form taking our total student numbers to approximately 1516, which includes over 300 students in the Sixth Form. Our students achieve excellent results, year-in, year-out, both at GCSE and A-level. Our A-level results place us in the top 10% of providers nationally and we rarely have any NEET students. In Oct 2017, Ofsted rated the school outstanding in all areas. That judgment is a reflection of a lot of hard work, but only forms part of what makes Huntington so special. As a school, we by no means rest on our laurels, but continually strive to be better. At Huntington School, we believe that people matter most! We believe our school is made a special place by the students and staff who come here together to learn. We believe that positive, respectful relationships between everyone in our school are crucially important in making Huntington an exciting place to study. We think that we have created an atmosphere at Huntington where we can all thrive together, where the conditions for growth are just right.
