Our school is truly at the heart of our local community and likewise the local community at the heart of our school. We have served Thirsk and the surrounding area for over 60 years and continue to do so with an ethos that is child centred, ensuring that ‘every child really does matter’.

We pride ourselves on being committed to delivering an excellent ‘all round’ education confident that whatever the needs or abilities are of your child, that our rich curriculum meets the needs of all our learners. Not only do we strive to ensure that the young people in our care achieve academic success, but likewise we endeavour to develop the ‘whole person’ through our strong extra-curricular offer; this includes Music, Drama, Sport and the Duke of Edinburgh Award (Bronze, Silver and Gold) to name but a few. For us, the recognition of individual qualities is key to both academic and personal success.

Similarly, we value the importance of our role pastorally in terms of supporting students. We know that without the right support and interventions, at the right time, young people will not succeed academically. Through our pastoral and inclusion teams, we aim to help our students navigate the challenges that life may throw at them, both now and in the future.

Finally, for us to achieve the ultimate success for our students is not only dependent upon the student themselves but also the partnership between school and home; which cannot be underestimated. For any community to thrive, it must be built on strong and positive relationships. With this in mind, we look forward to working with you in supporting our values and vision. Please do not hesitate to contact the school should you require further information or would like to request a visit.
