Nidderdale High School is a member of the Red Kite Teaching School Alliance with both students and staff enjoying the benefits of partnership working within the Alliance. In October 2017, Ofsted judged the school to be 'Good' in all areas of its provision.

If you have the motivation and drive for excellence and want to be part of an enthusiastic, dedicated and well-resourced team, committed to ensuring that all students make the best possible progress in an ambitious school with the desire to be 'Outstanding', we would be pleased to receive an application from you.

Please complete the application form on our website and submit by email to Mrs A Robertson at admin@nidderdale.n-yorks.sch.uk by the closing date.

Nidderdale High School is a thriving and unique 11-16 comprehensive school set in the rural location of Pateley Bridge, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The ethos of our school is a clear one: to enable our students to thrive and progress, our motto being ‘Achievement for All’. At Nidderdale High School, every child really does matter and we work hard to ensure that all is done in our students’ best interests - whether that be providing a curriculum matched to their abilities and interests, or ensuring their progression to the most appropriate pathway after they finish their qualifications. We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing environment that also challenges students to achieve the highest academic standards.

We provide a positive, supportive and well-disciplined environment which enables all students to fulfil their potential and achieve success in all aspects of school life. We want our students to leave with the skills to adapt, flourish and make the most of every opportunity regardless of the challenges they face in an ever-changing world. As a small school we are uniquely placed to know our students as individuals and to be responsive to their needs. We are fully committed to the highest possible standards of care and guidance, and the progress our school community makes shows that this is very effective.

Ofsted recognises the school as being a ‘good school and good in all areas’, confirming something we already know. While such affirmation is important, it is the students’ own attitudes alongside the high quality teaching provided by our staff that leads to them doing so well. We also know that to achieve our aims, strong partnerships and effective collaboration are essential. The school is part of the Red Kite Teaching School Alliance and works in partnership with many local organisations, including Nidderdale Visual Arts and Bewerley Park Outdoor Education Centre. A strong and effective partnership with parents underpins the work we do in school to support our students and we look forward to working with you to achieve this. We are pleased to welcome visitors to our school. If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact the school.
