We are on a journey and everyone at #teamgraham is rightly proud to be effecting change within our coastal community.

Our motto is ‘Grow, Learn and Achieve together’ and we have five key values which underpin everything we are working to achieve here. These are Honesty, Empathy, Aspiration, Resilience and Team Work; ‘HEART’.

Whilst many of our current staff are local, many also travel from York, Hull, Driffield and the surrounding areas. Staff wellbeing and team work are at the heart of our plans and we are proud that our school now has low staff turnover and high staff retention.

We are a proud member of the Hope Sentamu Learning Trust family of schools along with our coastal partner George Pindar School. As our new colleague you will join a staff body who with the tailored support from our Trust are making Graham a school our community can be proud of.

We are an inclusive school with a healthy intake in Year 7 and we have the highest aspiration for our students to achieve their very best and grow both as individuals and as members of their community. The development of the whole child forms an integral part of our vision; we want the best for every student at Graham School irrespective of their background. We value honesty, high expectations and aspirations, resilience and we work together as #Team Graham.

About Graham School

Graham School is an 11-16 community situated in in Scarborough, which has just under 1000 students on roll. Scarborough is easily accessible and whilst many of our current staff are local, many also travel from York, Hull, Driffield and the surrounding areas.

Our staff are our greatest resource and we are proud to be a host school to Teach First and NPQ providers. Staff who have relocated or who have entered teaching through all routes have stayed with us whilst our support staff have successfully applied for internal promotions and careers in teaching – and for us that is a sign of a school on the up!

On the 1 March 2019 we officially joined the Hope Sentamu Learning Trust family of schools along with our fellow coastal partner George Pindar School. This is a positive step in our school improvement journey which sees us working collaboratively sharing best practice, developing our staff, developing advancements on teaching and learning and ensuring strong outcomes for our students.

We follow good educational practice and tested school improvement strategies which will over the next three years see Graham School begin to take its rightful place as a leading school in the area.
