Primary Transition - Welcome!

Message from the Principal

Welcome to George Pindar School! I am delighted that your child will soon be a member of #TeamPindar and want to take this opportunity to thank you for entrusting us with the care of your child for the next five years. Here at GPS we are proud to serve Eastfield and the south of Scarborough and to be a member of the Hope Sentamu Learning Trust. We are very #ProudToBePindar and hope that your child will feel the same! We want the very best for all our students and have high expectations for them. We believe that everyone needs high aspirations to succeed and to that end our vision is to ‘Strive for Success’ in all that we do. We believe that every child is full of potential and has a unique part to play in our society.

We pride ourselves on the relationships we build between our students, parents, school and the local community. We would be happy to answer any queries you have – email is easiest in the first instance at In addition, our school website has a host of useful information and our social media channels are regularly updated so please follow us on Facebook and Twitter!

Here at George Pindar School we understand that success is different for all children and to that end we aim to develop the whole child ensuring that academic success is as highly valued as a rounded education which allows young people to take their next steps.

We offer a wide range of opportunities from academic achievement to sporting and musical activities, as well as a wide and varied programme of extra-curricular opportunities and whole school celebrations. Our exciting projects include the ‘Stepping Forward’ with Anglo American and our EDGE programme with North Yorkshire Police and other local businesses. We are a school committed to ensuring that our students develop in all ways and ‘Strive for success’ in all that they do’.

May I finish by saying how much I am looking forward to meeting you and your child and working together in the years ahead. The future for George Pindar school is an exciting one and I am confident that collectively we can support your child to reach their potential in everything they undertake.

Please do take some time to watch our videos below and check out our fun subject challenges here.
