Welcome to Upper Wharfedale School. Our Students travel from an area of some 200 square miles and being such a small school, we pride ourselves on our inclusive nature, knowing each of those students individually. We are a popular, oversubscribed non-selective school within the selective system of the Craven area. The students are our priority and we demonstrate this by teaching them well and expecting the very best from them, whilst celebrating all their achievements academic and otherwise. We exploit the skills and potential of our students, encouraging moral, social and economic awareness so that they can lead confident, healthy and responsible lives as individuals and members of society. Our vision is based on a relentless focus on high quality teaching and learning, overcoming barriers so that each student achieves the best possible outcomes. We design our curriculum carefully to promote high aspirations and skills for lifelong learning and cultural capital within a safe yet challenging environment. According to our most recent Ofsted report (June 2019), leaders are "uncompromising in their ambition," there is "an exceptional learning culture within the school" and "outcomes are truly outstanding in the widest sense." I hope our website will give you a flavour of life at Upper Wharfedale School (UWS) but for a closer look, please make an appointment to visit us and see for yourselves.
