Welcome to Priesthorpe School
Message From Headteacher, Martin Blacoe
Priesthorpe is a popular and successful Secondary school that prides itself on being at the heart of the community it serves. We are a co-operative foundation school and part of the Leeds Co-Operative Schools Network.
A commitment to consistently high quality teaching and learning and good behaviour provides a platform to deliver an exciting, innovative and personalised curriculum. This enables our students to be the best that they can be, achieve excellent outcomes and develop into citizens of the future who are well equipped for the world of work and beyond.
The school has a very special ethos that visitors continue to comment on, and it is the excellent care and support, meeting the individual needs of our students, that was reflected when the school was awarded the Inclusion Chartermark. Put simply, we care deeply about our students.
Collaboration plays a key role in improving student achievement. As one of the three Pudsey Secondary schools, who together form the Pudsey Confederation, we share post 16 provision and are thus able to offer opportunities for students to study a wider range of subjects. In July 2012, Priesthorpe secured Co-operative Trust Status. We are very excited about creating and developing opportunities to work formally with other schools and businesses that share a common ethos and values with us, and who have a collective desire to maximise student outcomes.
A wealth of learning takes place at Priesthorpe beyond the classroom. £15 million of recent investment in facilities ensures that opportunities to further engage in Sport, Drama and Music, for example, are plentiful. As a Sports College, we provide the focal point of much of the sporting activity within our community.
