It is my great privilege to be able to introduce you to the Market Weighton School. We are a small school, proud of our traditional rural heritage, yet ambitious for the future of all our students. Our size is a real strength as it enables students and their families to work closely with the teaching and support staff at the school, building positive working relationships over an extended period of time. We believe that students achieve best in a supportive and positive environment – and that is what you will find in our school. We hope that you will find these pages helpful, please contact the school should you wish to receive further information.

“My child has settled into school really well and is starting to make new friends”

“Superb, everyone knows everyone.  The Head knows all our children by name”

“ My Daughter has settled into the school as a lone pupil from her Primary School very well indeed”

“Both my children are very happy at this school.  Academic standards are high with lots of interesting extra-curricular activities offered”

“Mr Yeadon and Mr Morris have both been extremely supportive”

“The three transition days were really good for preparing my son for what to expect in September”

“My daughter has changed for the better since starting at TMWS, she is happy and loves coming to school.  She does her homework every evening as soon as she gets home and is now very organized. Brilliant!”

“My daughter is happy and has settled well.  Pleasing to see an improvement in the school’s GCSE results in 2018”
