Our Ethos and Vision

Our Ethos is simple:

“Everything you do should be worthy, of great merit, character and value”.

Woldgate is a positive, warm and welcoming school where pupils aim to do their very best and take pride in their achievements. By constantly challenging our pupils to excel, we nurture aspiration and strive to cultivate a lifelong love of learning in our young people. 

We provide a creative, safe and caring environment where every child is known and cared for as an individual. In this climate, every young person has the opportunity to thrive as they develop in personality, character and intellect and become highly successful learners and individuals.

We believe we provide a unique education for our young people. As a school at the heart of the community it serves, we work in partnership to ensure our children not only receive a broad and balanced education, but also have the opportunity to enjoy the Yorkshire Wolds and make a wider contribution to the area in which they live.

Our School Vision

Our vision for Woldgate School is set out by our mission statement, one in which all members of our community both live and work by our School motto: 

Woldgate School is a school where everyone lives and works by our motto; that everything we do should be worthy of great merit, character and value’ – trying our best, being our best and embracing our British values. Ours is a school where every pupil is known and cared for as an individual; where their individual needs are supported by the whole school community. We aim to deliver a world-class curriculum containing the best of what has been thought and said, taught by the best teachers in inspirational classrooms. Our lessons are interesting, engaging and exciting. All pupils, regardless of ability, needs or background, are able to make rapid, sustained progress, achieve exceptional outcomes and grow into lifelong learners and successful individuals. A school where all children can access a range of enrichment opportunities to broaden their horizons and develop their life experiences.
