Sherburn High School

Sherburn High School is a thriving, 11-18 comprehensive school that is big enough to deliver but small enough to care.

The school aims to create and maintain a happy and purposeful working atmosphere through good quality relationships between students, staff, parents, governors and the community at large.

Our stated aim is, ‘Achievement for All’. We believe that achievement is about all members of our community, both adults and children, reaching their full potential at whatever they do.

The simple ingredients at Sherburn are:

  • High expectations of everyone.
  • Quality learning experiences - teaching and learning comes first.
  • Good behaviour for learning as non-negotiable.
  • Community spirit.
  • Recognising the importance of quality professional development for all staff.
