Welcome to Bedale High School.

As Headteacher of Bedale High School, I feel extremely proud of our students and privileged to be leading a team of staff who are dedicated to maintaining our recent and impressive period of improvement. Our “Good” Ofsted report from February 2019 highlighted the positive trajectory that the school is on and our aim is to maintain this focus so that the school is rightly judged to be “outstanding”.

This is nothing less than the school and the community deserves so, with the support of all parents, our pledge is to work in partnership to strengthen our provision continuously. We will stay focused on high expectations and remain committed to our core values around attitude, respect and commitment:

  • Positive attitude to learning;
  • Respect for all;
  • High levels of commitment.

Increasingly, our students are fulfilling their vast potential whether it be in the classroom, out on the sports pitches or up on the stage and it is great to see students wearing our uniform with pride. We work hard with parents and various post-16 providers to ensure that students secure valid progression routes after leaving school. Ultimately, our aim is to create students who are successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. We know that if we succeed in this, they will leave us well prepared for life beyond school, and hopefully thrive in their chosen careers.

If you are interested in finding out more, I would urge you to make contact with us either by e-mail or calling on 01677 422419.
