About South Hunsley School and Sixth Form College

South Hunsley School and Sixth Form College

South Hunsley is a genuinely outstanding school where everyone has the highest possible aspirations. We believe that the potential of young people is limitless and we are very proud of the fact that our students are the highest performing students in the East Riding. Our committed and caring staff are fundamental to the success of our students.

South Hunsley is a large, heavily over-subscribed secondary school with over 2100 students on roll, including 430 in the sixth form. We are fortunate to work with fantastic students, an outstanding staff and supportive parents. In each of the last 3 years, our Progress 8 figure has been in the range of +0.49 to +0.59 and we have won the Pupil Premium Award for Yorkshire and the Humber in 2 of the last 4 years. Our sixth form goes from strength to strength and this summer we were placed in the top 10% of providers according to ALPS. We have an outstanding programme of personal development and extra-curricular activities and in 2016 we were rated as the third best state school for sport. South Hunsley is a Teaching School – the Wolds TSA – and we have also become a School-Centred Initial Teacher Training provider.

Whatever your ambitions you can be certain that we will do whatever we can to help you get there. We want everyone at South Hunsley to be happy, confident and successful in achieving their goals. We can promise you support, care, encouragement and respect alongside a really enjoyable and rewarding working environment.

We have four guiding principles:

  • Believe in the team 
  • Focus on learners to drive decisions
  • Keep it simple, do it right
  • See it, own it, make it happen

South Hunsley is the largest school in the Education Alliance, a multi-academy trust which is creating a family of primary and secondary academies in the Humber region, enabling an increasing number of children and young people to fulfil their potential, helping them achieve the best possible outcomes and providing them with access to a diverse range of opportunities when they leave school.
