Welcome to Selston High School

Selston High School offers a supportive, student-centred learning environment that enables our school family to thrive, living out our motto: “to inspire every member of the school community to achieve their full potential and enjoy the experience”.

At Selston, we believe in delivering education based on strong routines. We have embedded consistency within our practice and believe that excellence is a habit. Our four values drive us each and everyday,  supporting our high expectations school culture.

We believe that there are no shortcuts to a high-quality education, and we will do whatever it takes to prepare our students to lead a happy and successful life.  At Selston, we put relationships first: we believe that positive student relationships underpin student success.  Staff aim to be 100% kind and 100% consistent in their approach. In doing so, we create a safe and purposeful learning environment where students can strive to reach their full potential.

If excellence is a habit, our practice culture helps to ensure we remain ambitious in our approach to continuous improvement. We demonstrate growth by being open and honest about our areas of strength and development. We are determined to offer our students the very best education and practise the key ingredients to outstanding teaching and learning every day.

The best way to experience our wonderful school is to visit. We offer guided tours throughout the year and you are more than welcome to come and see Selston High School in action during the course of a school day.

Thank you again for visiting our website. We very much hope to welcome you in person to our school in the near future.
