Welcome to The Joseph Rowntree School
I am delighted to welcome you to The Joseph Rowntree School. Our school is a successful 11-18 mixed comprehensive of some 1,200 students, including approximately 250 in the Sixth Form, set in extensive, attractive grounds and playing fields.
With the huge bonus of our complete new school building, along with its superb design and enhanced facilities, we are able to provide opportunities which challenge young people at every level in our world of technological change.
Our aim is to encourage students to develop into mature and confident young people who play an active part in all aspects of school life. With our very strong guidance and pastoral care systems, our students are valued, supported and given every opportunity for personal development through the full spectrum of subjects and extra curricular activities.
The school has a first class teaching and support staff who are friendly, welcoming and helpful. Everyone works effectively and there is a genuine concern to provide high quality education alongside support for our students. We are a fully inclusive school, preparing students with the skills to learn throughout their lives as citizens of the 21st century.
We welcome applications from our own school community as well as entrants from outside of the school. New entrants quickly settle in and make friends.
Choosing the right secondary school is an important decision. We all want to provide the best possible all round education for our young people and will work in partnership with you, in order to fulfil you child’s full potential. We look forward to meeting you, and welcoming you to the school.
