I'm not familiar with the school, but if it's the school I'm thinking of it's not in York, it's near Huddersfield which is about an hour west of York. I hope I am thinking of the same place, sorry if I'm not!

Yes, It is located in west of York, can anybody comment on this school. I really
surprised that in ranked 1247 in FT 2012...since the GCSE O & A level similar to
those around ranked 500 , with beautiful campus, any unspoken reason bullies..

Locally it has the reputation of being where you send your children if they need more support than they might find in the majority of secondary schools. Which is a good thing, obviously, as they can find what they need there. I went to the prep open day last time and it looked really quite shabby by comparison with Hulme's Kindergarten in Oldham, although things may be quite different at secondary level. I hope that's somewhat useful.

former friend's son went there from 11 to 18. he was a mid-ranking academic type and came out with good A levels. he'd be...22 now, so not so long ago.
