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 is slightly smaller than other secondary schools nationally, however, due to its improved reputation in the community we are confident that it will be oversubscribed by September 2018. The great majority of students are of white British heritage though the proportion who are classified as being disadvantaged is higher than that typically found nationally. Under the exceptional leadership of its Principal, Chris Stokes, the academy will continue to improve at a rapid pace making it an exciting place to work. We are also particularly excited about plans which are at an early stage to seek permission to demolish the current buildings and to build brand new, state of the art facilities by 2020 for the Bruntcliffe community. 0113 2523 225 info@bruntcliffe.leeds.sch.uk www.bruntcliffe.leeds.sch.uk Bruntcliffe Lane, Leeds, LS27 0LZ Principal: Mr C Stokes Chair of Gov: Tarsilo Onuluk Opened: September 2015 0113 487 8888
