Welcome

As a comprehensive academy, our overriding aim at IGS is to ensure that our students achieve everything that they are capable of – their ‘Personal Best’ - from Year 7 through to Sixth Form and beyond.

We are very proud of our excellent reputation in the local community, as well as the wider Leeds and Bradford areas and pride ourselves on the quality of education we provide to our students. Our Ofsted inspection in March 2017 confirmed us as an 'Outstanding' school in all areas of our provision. 

Ilkley Grammar School is the founding school of Moorlands Learning Trust multi-academy trust and consistently achieves excellent examination results at both GCSE and A Level. Hard work is an expectation of all and we strive for continual improvements year on year by challenging our staff and students to excel.
