Graham School is an 11-16 school situated in Scarborough, which has over 1000 students. Scarborough is easily accessible and whilst many of our current staff are local, many also travel from York, Hull, Driffield and the surrounding areas. Over the last year, the school has worked proactively with the Local Authority and the Hope Learning Trust York to continue to drive improvement. The school has also just had a positive monitoring visit from Ofsted.

Academic resilience, high expectations and a culture of teaching and learning are now very much part of Graham School and the recruitment and retention of our staff is critical to delivering an outstanding school to our coastal communities and families.

In 2019 we will officially join the Hope Learning Trust family of schools along with George Pindar School. We continue to work collaboratively together sharing best practice, developing our staff, developing advancements on teaching and learning and ensuring strong outcomes for our students.
