Academic Philosophy

York High School is proud of their Academic Philosophy.

We try at all times to maximise and protect academic time for each and every learner.  The classrooms provide a stimulating environment in which to learn and we attempt to nurture and develop the academic potential in every student.  Our school provides a comprehensive support system for under-achieving students as well as for those striving for excellence.  Our pupils are encouraged to participate in Olympiads and extend their academic potential by doing IT and Add Maths as additional subjects.  Peer tutors, support classes and willing staff are available for dedicated learners, and students with barriers to learning are accommodated through alternative examination systems.
