The Art of a Good Speech

Many extra-curricular school activities have, unfortunately, ceased over the last year.  However, one of the few that has gone ahead has seen two of our teams achieve great success – our Debating and Public Speaking Teams.  Both teams, consisting of Year 11 students, have made excellent progress against some very stiff opposition.
The Debating Team have made it to the National Semi-Finals, and the Public Speaking Team made it to the Regional Finals.  We are very proud of all the […]

Building Solid Foundations

Mr Williams often speaks of the importance of building the educational and character foundations that help students secure future career success when they leave school.
Over the last few weeks, Malton School has been digging some physical foundations to help it build on its success moving forward.  Work started on 8th February to build 4 new multi-purpose classrooms.
The new classrooms, which will be built between the two wings of the School – the former Grammar School (now the East Wing) […]

Supporting Everyone in Difficult Times

The new year and the new term may not have started in the way we would all have hoped. But just as there are signs of hope in nature – the first snowdrops have already been spotted – so there are signs that as we journey through 2021 it will bring renewed hope with it.  Whilst we wait for better news, we are supporting members of our community – be they staff or students – in a variety of […]

Mr Williams wins Top Award in Teaching Oscars

Over the past few weeks a small group of staff have been having whispered conversations, holding closed door meetings and sending highly confidential emails, all to ensure that Mr Williams had no idea, when he joined The One Show live on BBC One on Wednesday evening, whether that was as the overall winner or a runner-up.
So when Alex Jones revealed, through a series of clues, who the winner of the Headteacher of the Year in a Secondary School was, […]

Jumping with Style

Before Lockdown 2.0 the School’s Equestrian Team took part in a National Schools Equestrian Association Jumping with Style competition, held at Northallerton Equestrian Centre.
The competition, consisting of showjumping and cross-country fences, saw riders judged not only on their time and number of faults, but also their jumping style.  With six riders competing, including Daisy, who has just joined Malton School and is a newcomer to the team, expectations were running high.  The team put in some great performances – […]

Malton School Remembers Together

Like so many other key events this year, Remembrance Day 2020 will be unlike no other – with no public acts of remembrance.  However, BBC local radio stations across the country are joining together to mark Armistice Day through “Remembering Together”.  This nationwide project aims to unite people up and down the country – virtually.  Members of the public and schools are being invited to upload a picture to the Remembering Together project of them with the name of […]

BBC Radio York’s School of the Week

We were delighted to have been asked by Radio York to be “School of the Week” – and be only the 2nd school to have taken part.  Every morning this week, therefore, members of the Malton School community have been engaged in conversation with Georgey Spanswick on her breakfast show.
It’s been a great week as both staff and students have given Radio York’s listeners an insight into life here.  Mr Williams kicked the week off and much to his […]
