About Bruntcliffe Academy
Bruntcliffe Academy, previously Bruntcliffe High School, joined The GORSE Academies Trust in September 2015. Along with The Morley Academy, Bruntcliffe is situated centrally in the town of Morley itself. Over the course of recent years Bruntcliffe High School had failed its children and a position had established itself whereby families living on the same streets in the town were receiving a totally different standard of secondary education. The examination outcomes of 2014 and 2015 placed Bruntcliffe High School in the bottom 10% of schools nationally for the achievement of its students. To look at those examination outcomes in detail please go to the Department for Education website. So concerned were parents regarding standards at the school that in September 2014 hundreds of them met to protest to the local authority and the school’s governing body. As a consequence of that action The GORSE Academies Trust was asked to sponsor the school. Bruntcliffe academy over the course of the last 5 academic years has been on an upward trajectory. Ofsted graded Bruntcliffe Academy as Good in 2018 with Teaching and Learning and Leadership and Management graded as Outstanding. Outcomes for young people have improved rapidly, placing the outcomes for young people in the top 13% of schools nationally in 2019.
Bruntcliffe Academy is a slightly smaller than average secondary school, however, due to its improved reputation in the community we are now oversubscribed in Key Stage 3 and confident that this will be the case going forward for all future year groups. The majority of students are of white British heritage though the proportion who are classified as being disadvantaged is higher than the national average.
Under the exceptional leadership of its Principal, Laura Moore, the academy will continue to improve at a rapid pace making it an exciting place to work. We are also particularly excited about the current and future building work plans which will not only see improvements to the fabric of the building but also the aesthetics.
