Minority Matters


We place great emphasis on encouraging all our students to reach their academic potential but this is only part of the picture. The nurturing of wider personal characteristics such as taking responsibility, showing leadership, engaging in teamwork, and developing empathy and awareness are just as important.

At Skipton Girls’ High School we feel it is important that our students have opportunities that will enable them to have a well-rounded experience of Sixth Form life. All Year 12 students choose an elective option from our "X’tra" Enrichment programme alongside their subjects. Some of them carry additional qualifications, others allow students to develop a new skill or simply a way of letting off steam.

Pastoral Support

The welfare of our students is central to everything we do. Post 16 students have a dedicated Student Progress Co-ordinator: Mrs C Uren, who provides mentoring, support and access to internal and external services wherever needed. The whole Student Progress staff team are there to help all students with any problems and concerns and have an open door policy to assist with any worries or concerns you may have.

Our qualified Designated Safeguarding Leaders are Mrs F McMillan and Mr M Turner. In addition, our whole Student Progress Team are highly qualified and we have a comprehensive Safeguarding Policy to ensure that everyone throughout the school is aware of the correct procedures.
