“He’s Behind You …”

At the end of January Year 4 students from a number of local primary schools were treated to a morning of entertainment by 50 of our Year 9 students. As part of their Drama studies, students we asked last term to devise their own version of traditional British pantomimes. The students then worked in groups, as actors, designers and theatre technicians to bring the stories to life on stage.  The mini pantomimes included Little Red Riding Hood, Peter Pan, […]

A Day at the Races

A group of year 11 students had a fantastic day at Doncaster races during the St Leger meeting, thanks to the Taking The Reins programme, which allows students to experience various aspects of the racing world.  The group was kindly hosted by Amy Canham from Richard Fahey racing in Malton,  one of the founders of the Taking the Reins programme.  Here’s what the students had to say about their day:
“When we arrived we had the chance to go into […]

For the fifth year in a row Malton School’s Year 11 girls’ football team have reached the County Cup Final; and with 2 wins already to their name, in 2019 they once again proved to be unbeatable!
This year’s final on 1 May, was against Bedale School and pre-match nerves were running high – it being the first year the team had encountered the Bedale team which included an England pathway player.  The pre-game message to the Malton Team was […]

Sixth Formers put Best Feet Forward

Many congratulations to Year 12 students Megan Clibbens and Holly Hargreaves who took on their latest challenge on Saturday.  Along with their families, they successfully climbed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks (Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside) to raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Congratulations to our Food Festival winner

Alex Hutchinson has won the final of the Food Festival competition from 80 students across Year 9 at Malton School. The brief was to start with a basic Scotch egg recipe and come up with a unique creation. There were several heats in school before twelve students went to Malton Cookery School for the semi-final, and then six students competed in the final, which was held during the Food Festival itself. Alex prepared a traditional savoury scotch egg which […]

Volunteers Week – Celebrating our Senior Librarians

Our senior librarians; Matty, Zoe, Rowan, Monique, Beccy, Beth and Izzy all volunteer to organise and run the school library and support students using this facility. Matty was the first student to volunteer in this role, and has since built the team up to further their goal of maintaining the library space and supporting students.
The tasks our senior librarians undertake vary; some are focussed on the upkeep of the library itself: organising books, maintaining the careers information, keeping records and […]


The Year 9 Boys were crowned district football champions with a 2-0 win over a strong Eskdale side. Malton edged the early exchanges despite the absence of Ethan Oakes through injury.  Opportunities were limited, thanks to strong defending from both sides.  Josh Mann, in particular, impressed for Malton at the back.
After a series of chances created by the hold up play of Callum Moston, it was Malton who took a deserved lead through Will Hartley’s calm finish. The strong […]
