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

 Year 6 Virtual Open Evening - for admission to Y7 in 2021

Dear Parents 

We are obviously sad that we could not run our normal evening event so we have tried to capture some of the essence of our school ourselves. During the next week there will be a series of videos that we hope can give you a flavour of the school. 


If you have any questions you would like the Senior Leadership Team to answer please email us at and one of the team will respond as soon as possible.

If your child is unwell

We are into the cold and flu season, but as a general rule, pupils can come to school as long as they don’t have one or more of the three symptoms the NHS regard as the most common symptoms of Coronovirus and they are well enough to do so. These symptoms are described as: 

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal 

Most people with Coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms

We understand there have been difficulties in some people getting relevant tests but it is important that if your child has any of the above symptoms they should isolate at home (along with the rest of the household) in-line with government guidance, or until a test has proved to be negative. You will find relevant advice by following the link here:

If a child becomes unwell at school with any of the symptoms above, they will need to go home and follow government advice.

The School

Beverley High School is a Group 6, five-form entry girls' comprehensive within the East Riding of Yorkshire.   Approximately 860 students are currently on roll including 117 girls in the Sixth Form. The School, founded in 1908, has developed since 1973 from a grammar school into a fully comprehensive 11-18 establishment.  The school celebrated its 110th anniversary in September 2018.

Beverley High School was last inspected by Ofsted in October 2018 when inspectors said our school continues to be Good with Outstanding Teaching and Achievement of Pupils.  Beverley High School is long established with an excellent record and considerable achievements in academic work, music, drama, art and sport.   We are particularly concerned to develop each girl's good qualities to the full.   The school has a long tradition of successful education and enjoys a high reputation within the community, both at local and county level.   The school features in the “Good Schools’ Guide” and annually receives awards from the SSAT for exceptional results.

Subject departments are housed in purpose-built rooms set amidst fine grounds. We have a dedicated Learning Support Centre and Sixth Form Block, a large Sports Hall with Dance Studio and an impressive Art/Technology Centre.
