Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Selston High School.

I feel very privileged to be the Headteacher of Selston High School, a school where you can be confident your child will be safe, happy, and inspired to do their very best. Our values are reflected in our mission statement:

'To inspire every member of the school community to achieve their full potential and enjoy the experience'

I very much hope that this website will give you a clear sense of our values, curriculum, and enrichment opportunities. Our Open Evening takes place in the autumn of each year but you are very welcome to contact us and visit the school to see us at work.

As Headteacher I have high expectations of every member of the school community so that we can ‘inspire success’ in every student. You can expect your child to be nurtured, supported, and challenged so that they excel academically and socially.

At Selston High School we expect all students to share these high standards and to do their best every day. We recognise that each child is an individual and aim to personalise learning so that all pupils thrive and achieve their full potential. We aim to develop resilient, hard-working, and respectful citizens who will be ready for the next stage of their education and who can confidently and successfully take their place in the world.

Working with you as a parent will be vital to your child’s success; I hope this is the start of a successful partnership and I look forward to welcoming you and your family to our school.

As you click through the website you will note the comments of Ofsted who rated Selston High School as 'Good' in 2014. This judgement reflects the high standards and that Governors and staff are ambitious to improve further.
