Core Subjects

A Strong Foundation in Literacy, Numeracy & Science

At The Minster School York, we encourage perseverance, determination and endeavour; our young people aim high and are deservedly proud of their results. Staff imbue their lessons with enthusiasm and challenge and expect high standards of behaviour and effort in return. This means pupils from our school are ready to thrive wherever they move on to next.

Whatever our pupils dream of in the future, they will need a strong foundation in Literacy, Numeracy and Science. Literacy and Numeracy are the cornerstones of development and foundational skills for lifelong learning and achievement, underpinning the acquisition of more complex skills, including critical and creative thinking.
