About The Wensleydale School & Sixth Form

We are situated in the heart of the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, a spectacular place to live and work. While this means that we may be smaller than the average secondary, it does not mean that our desire to achieve excellence for our students is in any way diminished.

In fact, we punch above our weight in everything that we do.

In debating, we compete against leading independent schools in national finals. We are very proud of our successes on the sports field, taking home trophies from many of the local sporting competitions. Our enrichment activities and trips are the envy of other schools.

Above all, the key reason staff stay at Wensleydale is our students. They are the key factor in making the school a welcoming and friendly learning environment and they are committed to adhering and respecting the three key behaviours that shape the school’s mission and ethos: hardworking, positive and respectful.

Where our staff live and travel from is diverse: Leeds and the towns and cities of the North East are all commutable, and we border the Lake District, Lancashire, County Durham, and Yorkshire & Humber regions.
