Beverley High School is the only girls’ school in the East Riding of Yorkshire. We are a community of 816 students, including 120 in our Sixth Form, which forms part of the Beverley Joint Sixth Form with Beverley Boys’ Grammar School, and over 100 staff.
We are proud to be a caring, forward and outward looking community where pupils learn within a safe, supportive and happy environment. We have a strong reputation for providing excellent pastoral care and guidance; high quality teaching and delivering excellent student outcomes. We have excellent facilities and these, alongside committed teachers and support staff, hardworking pupils, supportive parents and dedicated governors; help us to create a positive school ethos.
We have excellent relationships with our local community and with our neighbouring schools and colleges, as well as strong partnerships with schools as far afield as Japan and Sri Lanka. We are proud of our school’s past in educating the girls of Beverley for over 100 years. Yet we are forward thinking and seek to recognise, nurture and celebrate all our students’ differing talents be they academic, artistic or sporting.
We hope that our website gives you a flavour of what our school has to offer.

Beverley High School is pleasantly situated in the centre of the attractive market town of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The catchment area is socially mixed and provides a full range of ability, taking students from Beverley and the surrounding villages of Tickton, Walkington, Wawne and Woodmansey.
The school has a committed staff of 50 full-time equivalent teachers and they reflect across-section of age and experience. There are over 120 staff employed by the school of which 60 are teachers (full and part-time).
Every pupil is assigned on entry to one of five mixed ability tutor groups, which are also house groups. Most of the social life of the school takes place within these Houses, for example there are regular inter-house competitions in most sports and for overall progress in academic work.
A pupil usually remains with her tutor group for five years. She has, where possible, the same form tutor from Years 7 to 11. Year Leaders are responsible for pupils within a particular year group and an Assistant Head teacher has responsibility for the Joint Sixth Form she is responsible for pupils in Years 12-13 on both Beverley High School and Beverley Grammar School sites.
