Welcome to Driffield School & Sixth Form
Situated in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds, Driffield is an attractive market town surrounded by productive agricultural land. Driffield School & Sixth Form, with its outstanding modern facilities, offers education for 11-19 year old students who live within its large rural catchment area, and increasingly to students from further afield attracted by its reputation and academic excellence.
You will be aware that from Monday 6 June 2016 The Education Alliance will be working with Driffield School and Sixth Form. We have devised a post-OFSTED action plan and we will be implementing it this term to ensure improvements are made.Find out more

We wish to recruit governors with a range of skills and experiences, who care about education and who have a shared interest in ensuring that Driffield School and Sixth Form responds to the challenges set by Ofsted and becomes once more a source of pride for our town and a centre of excellence and aspiration for all of our young people.Find out more
The Education Alliance has been asked by the Governors at Driffield School and Sixth Form, the Local Authority and the Regional School’s Commissioner to sponsor Driffield School, ideally from September 2016. This means that the school will be joining a locally based Trust which is presently made up of three schools and a very successful Teaching School Alliance, The Wolds TSA.Find out more
