Initially created by the Yorkshire Ridings Society in 1975, Yorkshire Day is a celebration of the county and its rich, interesting history. As a Yorkshire-based community, we, of course, will all be enjoying the day and thought we’d share some facts about our county that you might not already be aware of. If Yorkshire was […]
Today is World Friendship Day, which, of all of the recognised awareness and celebratory days (and there are many!), we think could be one of our favourites.

Happy Monday, and, more excitingly for lots of our pupils, happy summer!

The Wensleydale School and Sixth Form is here for one reason: to help all of our students realise their dreams.
To do this, we make sure that our young people feel part of our safe and caring community and challenge them to grasp every opportunity that their education offers. They can then leave us with the strongest possible set of exam results, outstanding inter-personal skills and a real understanding about where their passions and talents lie.
These are the qualities and traits that we think are critical to a good education. They open doors for young people, and the more doors that they have open - the more choices that they have.
At Wensleydale there are tangible outcomes to show that we are setting our standards high. Ofsted has praised the work that we do. Our exam results are on a very positive trajectory and exceed the national average, and we regularly compete and excel against schools much bigger than ourselves.
