Resources & Advice for Families

We are all now having to navigate through an unusual and unprecedented situation. We are aware that some young people and their families will be finding it extremely difficult to cope with the current situation. Click the button below for some useful contact details and resources for families to access during the period of school closure.

We are working to support our NHS and vital services.

Partial School Closure

From Wednesday 18 March the school will only be open to students in Years 11, 12 and 13 and for students where we have been able to identify that staying at home will require a carer who is a key worker in the health or education system to stay at home too.

Welcome to Driffield School & Sixth Form

Since taking up post as Executive Principal of Driffield School & Sixth Form in April 2018, I have been delighted by the friendly and supportive nature of the students, parents and staff.  The school has enormous potential and I look forward to welcoming your child to the school at such an exciting time.

At Driffield School we recognise that choosing a school for your daughter or son is a crucial decision and we take very seriously our responsibilities when parents entrust their child’s education and care to us.  We will do everything we can to ensure that every individual child receives the care, support and guidance they need to thrive. We are ambitious for each one of our students and we want to share in their successes and to see them leave us after seven years able to fulfil their dreams and aspirations. We will do our utmost to help them succeed and we have high standards and expectations of all our students.

All our students benefit from a broad and balanced curriculum that ensures that they experience exciting opportunities both within and outside the classroom.  Our curriculum is designed to enable our students to make good progress towards their academic targets and to provide remarkable experiences that will stay with them for a life time.
