About Our School

Vision and Values

scalby_logo_mottoScalby School Values

The vision for all our students and staff is, ‘being the best we can be’.

Students and staff are encouraged to be the best they can be by embracing the five core school values.

  • Learning

  • Leadership

  • Ambition

  • Preparation

  • Respect

At Scalby School, we pride ourselves on being a learning community where students make progress across all of their subjects every day and where teachers participate in weekly professional development activities to improve their practice.

We practise our leadership skills at all levels of our school life; our students have responsibilities to lead improvements for our school community and our staff have opportunities to demonstrate their leadership skills, ready for the next step in their careers.

We are relentless in our ambition to ensure that all of our students and all of our staff are challenged and supported so that they can maximise their potential.


Above all, our curriculum ensures that we develop the culture and character of our students. We believe these social attributes are just as important as academic qualifications in preparing our young people to be responsible citizens, who contribute positively to our community.

This is what “being the best we can be” means at Scalby School


Our whole school community deserves to work and learn in a safe and respectful environment. we expect all members of our school community to follow our three core principles of respect:

  1. Respect all staff and students in our school community.
  2. Respect your learning environment.
  3. Respect your learning and the learning of others.
