‘Staff are more positive about improvements in the school and the leadership’ Ofsted 2017
‘A great school on a journey to outstanding’
Graham School is an 11-16 school of 1015 students situated in Scarborough. Our staff team travel not just locally but from York, Hull, Driffield and surrounding areas. We are an inclusive school at the heart of our community.
Let’s be honest, in June 2017 our school was graded ‘inadequate’ by Ofsted and placed into special measure. We know where we stand and have high aspirations and a rigorous plan to turn the school around to a grading of ‘good’ within two years. With a positive monitoring inspection in December 2017 and a school that is very different to a year ago now is the time to get on board and make a real difference to our children and to your career.
Overview and career development recruitment incentives:
- Tailored career paths
- Opportunities to access in your early stages NPQML, Ambition School Leadership and SLE involvement.
- Teachers in the early stages of their career are welcome to apply, as well as from experienced colleagues.
- We advise you to come in and speak with the Principal to discuss the above and shape the next stage of your career.
Since our last full inspection in June 2017 we have had a change in leadership and in September 2017 we welcomed our new Principal Paul Brockwell. Much hard work has already been undertaken including embedding a new curriculum, re-modelling pastoral structures and ensuring that all members of the school community understand our mission. We believe that whilst there remains much to do the school is now well placed to quickly move towards our aim of being a 'good' school and better.
Our three main challenges moving forward are continuing to embed the highest expectations of all members of our learning community, delivering challenge and pace in the classroom and ensuring that all of our developmental work is underpinned by quality assurance with accountability. You will play a key role in this and will work closely with our talented and committed teams of leaders at middle and senior levels.
Graham School is part of the North Yorkshire Opportunity agenda that is a true partnership between the Local Authority, NYBEP, schools, colleges and local employers to improve the life chances of our children and young people on the Coast.
