About George Pindar School

Dear Colleague I am delighted you are interested in joining the team at George Pindar School. We have a highly ambitious, aspirational group of professionals who are raising standards and significantly improving the life chances of the young people of Scarborough and the Yorkshire Coast.

It is an honour to be the Principal of George Pindar School and this is a pivotal moment in the school’s journey.  In March 2019 we joined the Hope Learning Trust along with our coastal secondary partner, Graham School. Hope Learning Trust, York is a growing, successful Church of England multi-academy trust which was established to serve both church and community schools.

Hope Learning Trust’s vision is “serving others, growing together, living life to the full”. We are committed to servant leadership in each of our schools and we are dedicated to the journey of growing together as a family of schools. We want all of our children to have a rich educational experience which will develop them as young people and allow them to flourish.

As an organisation we recognise that high quality teaching and learning, with strong and supportive leadership, is the key to transforming children’s lives through education. However, we also recognise that support and teaching staff are developed through their experiences and the support of colleagues with whom they work.

George Pindar School is a community in which our teaching and support staff are incredibly passionate about teamwork. The Trust is predicated upon collaboration and sharing, forming a family of schools. All staff who join the Trust enjoy the support and camaraderie of other colleagues through our subject and career networks.

Staff morale is high and we have a commitment to recognise individual potential and to provide support, CPD and training for colleagues joining our organisation at all levels; you will never feel unsupported or alone in our Trust. We have a track record of offering training and development opportunities to all support staff and recently several colleagues have benefitted from their time at George Pindar School as excellent experience for their successful applications to both internal promotions and careers in teaching. 

This is an exciting time in our development as we continue to work hard to drive improvement in our academies. Through strong and purposeful leadership and high-quality teaching and learning we are confident that we can have a positive impact upon the lives of young people, ensuring that all students achieve their potential, realise their aspirations and are well prepared for the next stage of their lives. Our non-teaching staff are vitally important in supporting the needs of the students in our care as we aim to deliver high quality learning experiences for all our students. 

I am incredibly ‘Proud to be Pindar’ and am working with my colleagues at all levels to raise aspirations and support our students to make the progress they deserve. The school has a shared sense of purpose and a vision for success which inspires me on a daily basis. If you are appointed, you will join a truly committed body of professionals who really care about our young people. I encourage you to come and visit and learn more about us and thank you for taking the time to apply to join George Pindar School.
