Welcome from the Principal
Welcome to our website. We hope that the information contained in it gives you a flavour of the type of school that we are. Our values of respect, resilience, integrity, compassion and ambition underpin everything that we do. The school is rapidly improving and this was highlighted by Ofsted’s Chief Inspector of Schools Amanda Spielman in 2017 who said we had ‘transformed all areas of the school’.
Since then we have made further significant improvements to the school and this resulted in our students achieving our best ever GCSE results under the new Progress 8 system in the summer of 2018. In addition to this we are the most improved school out of the 38 secondary schools in Leeds City Council and we are one of the most improved schools in the region.
The improvements we have made were highlighted in our latest Ofsted inspection in April 2019 when the school achieved good grades in all categories including our 6th form. Please follow this link to read the full report.
We are highly ambitious for our students and we have a comprehensive development programme which will ensure we continue to make further rapid improvements so that our school becomes a centre of excellence.
Our staff are exceptional and we pride ourselves on the quality of relationships which exist within the school. Pudsey Grangefield School has been at the heart of our local community for over 100 years and we are proud of our strong links with the town and the surrounding area. We also provide our students with a broad range of experiences to ensure that when they leave Pudsey Grangefield School they have reached their true potential and are fully equipped for the next stage of their lives. Our careers support encapsulates this - our annual Careers Fair attracts over 60 employers, further and higher education providers ranging from local businesses, public emergency services, national and global companies and Russell Group universities.
In our contact pages you will find the email addresses of key staff if you want to contact specific teachers directly. We would advise parents with a subject query to contact the Subject Leader in the first instance and if it is a pastoral support matter to contact the Year Leader.
