Description of the school – Skipton Girls’ High School

Skipton Girls’ High School is a selective, smaller than average-sized school that serves the market town of Skipton and the largely rural surrounding districts. The number of students has risen significantly over the last three years. The area served by the school has relatively low levels of social deprivation and very few students are entitled to free school meals. Over 92% of the students are White British in origin. Several minority ethnic groups are represented in small numbers, but few students speak English as an additional language. The proportion of students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is very low. The school gained specialist engineering status in 2003. It is an Investor in People and holds the Healthy Schools award.
