About Settle College

Settle College is an 11-18 comprehensive school. Founded in 1907 as Settle Girls’ High School, in 1959 we became Settle High School, one of the first comprehensive schools in the UK. Our name changed again to Settle College in 2004 when the school gained Technology College status.  At Settle College, high quality teaching and learning is at the heart of everything we do, combined with exceptional pastoral support to meet the individual needs of every student. We place a strong emphasis on high standards of behaviour, respect and courtesy. Our innovative Key Stage 4 curriculum allows students the opportunity to study a wide range of GCSE and vocational courses from Year 9 onwards. We also offer a full and diverse range of extra-curricular activities in sport, dance and drama, to name a few.

Values and Vision

Settle College is a place of innovation and creativity, where all children are encouraged to uphold their highest academic abilities at the same time as enjoying their time studying in a vibrant and successful school. Thanks to its smaller size than many secondary schools, it treats each of its students as individuals, ensuring that their personalities, skills and talents are used to make the school the diverse and thriving educational environment that it is.


"The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Since your appointment as Headteacher in November 2018, you have led the school with vision and vigour and a real sense of moral purpose. Working with staff and governors, you have quickly and effectively established a culture and ways of working that have helped address the uncertainties that had led to a dip in quality of some aspects of the school’s work. Because of your actions and approach, the school is very much back on track and is making strong progress."
