Essential Information

Red Kite Alliance

We are proud to be a member of The Red Kite Teaching School Alliance.  Red Kite Alliance is a partnership of secondary, special and primary schools, collaborating to help each other improve the outcomes for young people. Members have a shared moral purpose to work together to improve the learning and achievement of all the young people in our schools. We firmly believe that we are ‘stronger together’ and the partnership between staff in membership schools enables all partners to benefit by both contributing to and receiving expertise and support from each other. 

This school-led approach brings benefits to all the schools involved and helps our school continue to develop and innovate. Our students benefit from the Alliance’s work as it impacts directly on the quality of teaching they receive. Red Kite Alliance is run by schools for schools to help ensure all our young people have the opportunity to achieve their potential.   Read more about the work of our Alliance here: 

Red Kite Teacher Training

In addition to our Red Kite Alliance membership, we also work with Red Kite Teaching Teacher Training. Red Kite Teacher Training offers school-based routes into teaching through a large partnership of Primary, Secondary and Special Schools based in and around North and West Yorkshire. Initial Teacher Training programmes are tailored to individual needs and aspirations in partnership with the University of Leeds. With a proven track record of supporting and bringing talented teachers into the profession, experienced practitioners deliver outstanding training in schools within the partnership. In addition to the School Centred Initial Teacher (SCITT), there is an Assessment Only route for professionals already employed in a school. 

We are proud to host trainee teachers in our school bringing fresh ideas and research-led ideas to our classrooms. Mentoring and training facilitation opportunities provide professional growth opportunities for our staff. For more information visit:
