Headteacher’s Welcome

Home/Our School/Headteacher’s Welcome

We understand that the decision about where to entrust the care of your child is extremely important and we thank you for considering Archbishop Holgate’s School. As a school community we pride ourselves on the fact that our students are happy and enjoy the experience of learning with us in all kinds of ways. As an outstanding school we realise that achievement comes in many different forms and we are committed to ensuring that your child has every opportunity to flourish, grow in confidence and make the most of their individual gifts and talents.

The collaboration and relationships between students, parents and school is key to our success as a learning community. Communication is central to these relationships, which is why my colleagues and I will always be available to discuss the education and personal development of your child. As part of this commitment I personally make it a priority to send a newsletter to parents each and every week; and our school Twitter feed and website can also help keep you up-to-date with all the latest news from the school.

“An outstanding school”
“Excellent quality of education and care”
“Excellent teaching and support for learning”
“Leadership and management are outstanding”

Archbishop Holgate’s is a flourishing school with outstanding examination results, high quality teaching and learning, an inspiring curriculum (complemented by sporting and musical achievements) and a wide, varied programme of extra-curricular opportunities. We seek to nurture aspiration and promote excellence in all our students with whole-school celebrations that embrace the entire school community, such as our Young Leaders Award, end of term assemblies, musical productions and our Christmas Service in York Minster.

We are committed to ensuring that our students develop in all ways and at the heart of all we do is a commitment to ‘Values, Care and Achievement’:

  • Christian values that underpin all we do
  • Outstanding pastoral care that sees each student as an individual
  • Maximum achievement for all students, at all levels

We know that your son or daughter’s education is precious and as teachers we are privileged to play a part in helping shape so many exciting futures. At Archbishop Holgate’s this is a responsibility that we fully embrace.

“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.”
