Our School Values

Our school values of Justice, Compassion, Forgiveness and Trust are ‘lived into being’ by both students and staff.
They permeate all areas of school life and represent a shared vision across the entire school community.

Outstanding in All Areas

We were delighted to be awarded the highest possible rating by Ofsted who judged the school to be outstanding in all areas following our last inspection in October 2021.

“Archbishop Holgate’s School is an exceptional place for students to learn. The school’s values of justice, compassion, forgiveness and trust are at the heart of every aspect of school life.”

The AHS Journey


The AHS Journey is everything we do in order to ensure students leave us with the capacity to maximise their life chances. We aim to provide students with the opportunity to reflect upon and identify their own character whilst understanding their place within the wider world. No two students’ journey will be the same, however, they will share similar experiences and opportunities in order to shape who they are and what they believe.

Welcome from Harriet Powell, Head of Year 7

My role, alongside the Assistant Heads of Year and our experienced team of form tutors, is to make sure your child is happy, settled and confident. Personally, I aim to ensure that every child thrives and flourishes during their first year here at Archbishop Holgate’s School.

Form Tutors will help your child to feel secure and to make new friends within their form groups and across the year group. They will encourage your child to take advantage of the many clubs, activities and social events over the course of the year. As a pastoral team, we will also be there to guide your child and solve any problems they encounter. This is an important time in your child’s life and we will strive to ensure it is positive and memorable.
