Collaborative working

This year, our schools are continuing their collaborative efforts by organising regular subject lead meetings. These meetings bring together dedicated professionals from our Trust schools three times a year, allowing them to share ideas, knowledge, and best practices. The sessions are led by subject lead experts and are well-attended by our enthusiastic staff.

During these meetings, our educators actively engage in discussions, exchanging innovative teaching methods and effective strategies. The collaborative atmosphere fosters creativity and inspiration, resulting in teachers returning to their respective schools enthused and armed with fresh ideas. They are empowered to incorporate these newfound practices into their teaching, enhancing the overall learning experience for our students.

This collaborative approach not only strengthens the expertise of our educators but also enriches the quality of education across all our schools. We are proud of our teachers' dedication to continuous improvement and their commitment to providing the best possible education for our students."

Art Exhibition 2023

We have had a wonderful week during our "Out for a Walk" art exhibition which was held as part of the Tales Told Festival of community events at Guiseley Theatre.  All 12 of our schools took the theme and worked hard with their children to use their imaginations and produce some wonderful artwork.  The children loved seeing their work on display and visitors to the exhibition were very impressed with the range of ideas and work that had been produced.

Schools also attended workshops which we held over the week.  These were run by sixth form art students from both Guiseley and Benton Park Schools.  They worked with the primary children to make Gelli art prints using leaves which would be found while "Out on a Walk".  The children really enjoyed making the prints and the older students did a great job in demonstrating and assisting them to make their work.

Our children also took part in a choir and drama performance of "Going on a Bear Hunt" which again involved the high school students and our primaries. Each school were helped to devise their scene by the high schools, they then worked hard to practice individually and all performed their own scene on the night.  The schools joined together to sing songs in between with the band from Benton Park also joining them for some songs.  The children performed with imagination and confidence and the event was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience.

Our schools have been busy celebrating World Book Day to encourage childrens’ love of books. Children dressed up as their favourite literary characters in many schools. Guiseley School held a range of student activities throughout the school. Eleven teams competed in the World Book Day Quiz Tournament, whilst others hunted down the hidden clues around school as part of their Literary Murder Mystery, featuring some famous book characters.

Giving at Christmas

Guiseley Community Foundation recently held a foodbank collection and were able to collect a large number of donations from Guiseley fans, players and other members of the community. Some of the donations have been distributed by Otley foodbank and Aireborough Children’s Centre. The rest will be made into hampers to distribute during their Healthy Holidays programme before Christmas.

Guiseley School Sixth Form collected a large number of toys and games to donate to the The Yorkshire Children’s Trust, a charity that helps children and their families cope with the emotional and financial strain of many life-changing illnesses. Donations will be used to give children who have to stay in hospital over the Christmas period a Santa’s grotto experience in several hospitals around the Yorkshire area.

We wish you all a happy, safe and enjoyable Christmas and New Year.

Training Day November 2021

On 19th November, the ALPT held the annual joint training day. With most of the schools able to take part, staff attended subject specific sessions and many secondary specialists were able to assist their primary colleagues. Feedback from the sessions were that staff found them really helpful and gained a lot from them with sessions being well received by those attending them. The support and contacts between staff at Trust schools is beneficial to all.
