Skipton Girls’ High School provides a strong system of pastoral care designed to provide support, guidance and confidentiality, and to promote the happiness, wellbeing, health and safety of all girls.
Skipton Girls’ High School highly values the inclusive nature of the school and its multi-cultural character, and promotes respect and understanding between students of different races, faiths, beliefs, cultures and backgrounds. Skipton Girls’ High School believes in the importance of the student and parent/ carer voice and actively seeks stakeholder feedback through many different means including our Parents in Partnership Group and Student Voice.
Skipton Girls’ High School seeks to recruit, retain, grow and develop the best staff because of its reputation, the supportive environment and opportunities that it offers.
