Inspiring a love of learning

“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

International Dimension

Beverley High School has a commitment to the International/Global dimension. We first achieved the British Council’s International School Award in 2002.

Beverley High School is committed to:

helping pupils to raise their awareness of the wider world in which they live
encouraging pupils to appreciate the richness and cultural diversity of the world
We intend:

  • to encourage all curriculum areas to consciously develop the international & global dimension at all Key Stages
  • to create opportunities for pupils to visit other countries and learn about other cultures
  • to welcome visitors from other countries into the school
  • to enable staff to benefit from professional development opportunities in other countries

We aim:

to enable pupils to develop a sense of their own identity and explore their own cultural heritage
to promote respect for people of all cultures and learn to value the achievements of all cultures
to encourage pupils’ desire to learn about global issues and to assist them in developing responsible attitudes towards such issues
to develop our pupils as global citizens eager and equipped to participate actively in an increasingly globalized world
