    About Otley Prince Henry's Grammar School Specialist Language College

    Prince Henry’s is an over-subscribed comprehensive school with over 1630 students (and growing!) – including around 320 in the Sixth Form. Our extremely positive Ofsted Report confirms us as a good school with outstanding student behaviour and outstanding leadership and management. Regardless of our current success, we strive for the continuous improvement of our educational provision so that our students are fully prepared for 21st century society. We serve the market town of Otley (in the Wharfe Valley) and the surrounding villages including Pool, Bramhope and Adel. The Wharfe Valley is a wonderful region in which to live and work. It is close to areas of outstanding natural beauty, yet also benefits from good transport links to key towns and cities across the country.
    Prince Henry’s Grammar School has a rich history dating back to its Royal Charter of 1607 when the core values of hard work, discipline, high achievement and ‘virtue’ were first established. Such high standards, in both the academic and broadest sense of the word, continue as the underlying principles of all that we do. Our behaviour and achievement policy, known as Positive Discipline, is central to this. The system rewards students for what they do well, whilst also providing a framework within which misdemeanours are challenged and sanctioned in a consistent manner. This results in the extremely positive attitudes to learning that exists amongst our students and helped secure the ‘outstanding’ behaviour and safety grade awarded in our Ofsted inspection. Prince Henry’s is an enjoyable place to work and learn and we aim to appoint colleagues who share our commitment to high professional standards.
    Our focus on equality and diversity has a significant impact on the philosophy and operation of the whole school. An international perspective is evident in all areas of school life and all colleagues are expected to deal with issues of global citizenship and equality through their role in school. Prince Henry's is the first high school in the area to have been awarded the British Council’s prestigious International School Award on five occasions, and was the first high school in the country to be awarded the Global Schools Award at Level 3. Typically, over 400 students take part in one of a dozen or more foreign trips and exchanges each year.
    Our commitment to promoting equality and celebrating diversity lies at the heart of our vision, and we have received national acclaim for our work in this respect. The school holds the highest level of the Stephen Lawrence Education Standard and is now engaged in supporting other schools to develop their own inclusive practices.
    Extra-curricular and enrichment provision is rich and varied. There are strong sporting traditions (including rugby, netball, hockey, athletics and swimming) and considerable interest in outdoor pursuits through a successful Duke of Edinburgh Award programme. Music, drama and a variety of other activities also flourish. Many students also benefit from the high quality enrichment opportunities offered in most curriculum areas. The governors are anxious to appoint staff who will support the vibrancy of our school.
    Prince Henry’s has been designated as a National Support School by the DfE, and gained Sponsor Academy status in September 2018 subsequently forming the Collaborative Learning Multi Academy Trust in order to support the next stage of the school’s development. The Trust is founded on existing partnerships and is in the initial stages of growth. We are proud of what we have achieved so far and excited about the future. Currently all teaching staff and all students in Years 7 to 13 have iPads as part of our “iPads for Learning” scheme. This is another example of how Prince Henry’s is at the forefront of educational development and is actively planning for a sustainable future.
    Of particular interest to new members of staff is the emphasis placed on high quality professional development. Prince Henry’s is a strategic partner in the Red Kite Teaching School Alliance and as such we work with our partners to develop and deliver high quality CPL to staff in our own school and across the region. This ensures good access to development opportunities for our teaching and associate staff.
    A number of services and benefits have been developed including such things as free coffee/tea at break time, parking, annual flu vaccinations, access to Cycle to Work and Computer schemes, corporate gym membership, staff takeaway meal service through Henry's Diner, long service awards and social events organised by the Staff Committee. There is also an opportunity for the children of staff to access the excellent education available at Prince Henry's in line with the Admissions Policy.
