What the school says...

I am delighted to introduce you to Sherburn High School, an 11-18 mixed comprehensive which is
situated in an attractive position on the western fringes of the village of Sherburn-in-Elmet. It is a
school where everyone achieves success, where individual talents are nurtured, where everyone feels
secure and special and where a happy working atmosphere prevails.
This was confirmed by our September 2001 OFSTED Inspection Report which states that: "The school
is a good school with many strengths.
Pupils attitudes to school are good. They enjoy coming and taking part in all that it offers and are
proud of their school.
The quality of teaching is good. In the sixth form teaching is very good overall.
The leadership and management of the school are good, characterised by care and concern for others
which is reflected in the way pupils relate to each other and to other adults.
Sherburn High School is a successful and thriving community, partly because we see education as a
partnership between committed and loyal staff, interested parents and motivated students. We aim for excellence in all that we do.
