Red Kite Alliance
Our school is a member of Red Kite Alliance
Red Kite Alliance is a partnership of secondary, special and primary schools, collaborating to help each other improve the outcomes for young people. We firmly believe that we are ‘stronger together’ and that the collaboration between staff in membership schools enables all partners to benefit from mutual support.
This school-led approach benefits all the schools involved and helps our school continue to develop and innovate. Our students gain from the Alliance’s work as it directly impacts 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.
In addition to our Red Kite Alliance membership, we also work with Red Kite Teaching Teacher Training and Red Kite Teaching School Hub.

Red Kite Teacher Training
Red Kite Teacher Training offers school-based routes into teaching through a large partnership of Primary, Secondary, and Special Schools based in 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) route, there is an Assessment Only route for professionals already employed in a school.
We are proud to host trainee teachers in our school, who are helping to bring fresh and research-led ideas to our classrooms. Mentoring and training facilitation opportunities provide professional growth for our staff.
