‘Serving others, growing together and living life to the full’ Hope Learning Trust’s vision
George Pindar School is an 11-16 secondary situated in Scarborough and we are a community school where our colleagues are #proudtobepindar. We are a school with low staff turnover, high staff retention and we are looking positively to the future.
On 1 March 2019 we officially joined the Hope Learning Trust family of schools along with our fellow coastal partner Graham School. This is a positive step in our school improvement journey which sees us working collaboratively sharing best practice, developing our staff, developing advancements on teaching and learning and ensuring strong outcomes for our students.
We are proud to be an inclusive school with a healthy intake in Year 7 and we have the highest aspiration for our students to achieve their very best and grow both as individuals and as members of their community. The development of the whole child forms an integral part of our vision; we want the best for every student at George Pindar irrespective of their background. We value honesty, high expectations and aspirations, resilience and we work together as Team George Pindar.
With a healthy intake in Year 7 and having completed a restructuring of our teaching and support roles we are recruiting for the key post of Attendance Officer to join our school.
