School Information

M Hill.jpgI am delighted to welcome you to South Craven School, a large, thriving and successful comprehensive school situated in Cross Hills.

Learning is placed firmly at the heart of the South Craven School community. Our main priority is to ensure our students have the best opportunities for success and the highest possible aspirations for the future.  We are very proud of our excellent reputation in our local community and aspire to provide the highest quality of education for all of our students regardless of ability or background.

As a school we recognise our responsibility to provide young people with the skills and qualities they need to respond to the challenges of a fast changing world.  We do this by promoting our South Craven Learner principles of Courage, Enquiry and Growth and focusing on preparing our students for life as active and productive citizens. We value each and every one of our students and aspire for them to achieve academically, socially and personally.

Our formula for success is built on partnership between home and school, teacher and student, school and community.  We are also part of the Red Kite Teaching School Alliance, where we work alongside a number of schools from Leeds and North Yorkshire.

I hope you will want to visit us and meet the people that make South Craven a success: our students, staff and Governors. We welcome your interest and invite you to come and see the school for yourselves.
