HEADTEACHER'S WELCOME

As an ‘Outstanding’ comprehensive academy, our overriding aim is for all students to enjoy an exceptional, inclusive learning experience and for them to achieve everything that they are capable of – their ‘Personal Best’ - from year 7 right through to Post-16 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 of March 2017 confirmed us as an ‘Outstanding’ school in all areas, where students “attain highly and make excellent progress”, where behaviour is “exemplary” and where “teachers go the extra mile to make sure students achieve, feel cared for and thrive within a supportive and productive learning environment”.  (You can read the full report here). Our success was also recognised in The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2018 with Ilkley Grammar School (IGS) named as the top ranked comprehensive school in the north of England.
