Our Students travel from an area of some 200 square miles and being such a small school with small class sizes, we pride ourselves on our inclusive nature, knowing each of those students individually. We are a popular, frequently oversubscribed non-selective school within a selective system in 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 Teaching and Learning in order to raise standards and aspirations to promote lifelong learning. According to our most recent Ofsted report, this "determined focus on raising standards has had a positive impact on students’ attainment. Standards have risen and show a strong pattern of sustained improvement ". Our partnership with Kettlewell Primary School is an exciting development for the area and through this we will sustain the high quality education for the 0-19 age group. 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.

School Notices.

The Governing Bodies of Kettlewell Primary School and Upper Wharfedale School are consulting parents, staff and the local community on a proposal to consolidate how the schools are led and managed.

The proposal is to federate the schools from January 2015 and the Governors of both schools would welcome your views on whether we should go forward with this idea. This paper sets out what Federation would mean and how you can make your views known. Please click HERE to access the document.
