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 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.
