Welcome to our ‘Culture of Excellence’

I feel hugely proud and privileged to be the Head of School at Tadcaster Grammar School.

TGS is not just another school; it is a thriving, successful and energetic place with a very special and unique ‘family’ feel. Although it is a large school, we pride ourselves on knowing our students really well as individuals and as a consequence, I believe it is a wonderful, caring and nurturing place to learn.

Our school community is friendly, but disciplined. Our students are expected to work hard and as a result, make very good progress; we encourage them to strive for personal excellence in everything they do.

At the heart of an education at TGS is high quality teaching; we strive for our students to be happy and excited about attending their lessons. A real feature of our school culture is that our staff go ’above and beyond’ to provide support and guidance for our young people which I believe is second to none.

During their time with us, we want our students to grow academically, personally and culturally. The curriculum remains broad and balanced and we are particularly proud of the extensive range of enrichment opportunities which are available. We think that young people who attend TGS are very well prepared to meet the challenges they will face beyond school.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. If you would like to know more about our school and get a real sense of our ‘Culture of Excellence’, I would like to invite you to visit us during the course of a normal school day. Please contact me at  to make an appointment.

My staff and I look forward to meeting you!
