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

    Our motto is #ProudToBePindar and we want all members of our community to strive for success. Our six key PINDAR values underpin everything we are working to achieve here. We want staff and students to be Proud, Independent, Neighbourly, Determined, Aspirational and Respectful.

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