Welcome To Ilkley Grammar School

Founded in 1607, our comprehensive school has a long and proud tradition of high quality education in the local community.  Established as an 11-18 school in 2000 following Bradford's reorganisation, we have around 1500 students on roll, of whom 300 are in the Sixth Form.

In September 2003 we were finally established on one site with the opening of a 35 room teaching block that complements our other extensive facilities including a sports hall, swimming pool and specialist rooms.

Our most recent Ofsted Inspection of 2007 quite rightly concluded, 'Ilkley Grammar School is a good school with some aspects that are outstanding'.

  • Students have assiduous and highly positive attitudes to learning.
  • Excellent relationships founded on mutual trust and respect.
  • Standards are exceptionally high: Student attainment is well above the national average.
  • A wide range of greatly valued, high quality, extracurricular activities.
  • Outstanding care, guidance and support.

High Standards

Ilkley Grammar School is about high standards and high aspirations.  We are proud to be a school with a long and strong tradition of high standards, and excellent results.  We set high standards across all aspects of school life and expect these to be met.  Good discipline, care and consideration are the basis of our work, and we are committed to working with parents to see students enjoy school and achieve.

All of us know what very good schools should be about and we are committed to challenging and cherishing our young people so they have the confidence to aim high.  Our expectation is that with us, you will want to share our aspirations.  Success comes at a price, and we look forward to working closely with you to set the high standards essential to high achievement.

'The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it' Michelangelo.

Our Learning

Lessons are for Learning

We take seriously the academic progress, welfare and conduct of each student.  The school offers a full range of courses at GCSE, A and AS level and at AVCE Advanced Level.  Applied GCSEs are currently available in ICT and Health and Social Care; AVCE ICT and Business run in the Sixth Form alongside over 20 AS/A2 courses. 

There is an ongoing commitment to developing courses to meet our students' needs at KS4 and in the Sixth Form, as well as to Gifted and Talented opportunities and those to do with Work Related Learning.

Encouragement & Support

Strong and close links with our feeder primary schools ensure a smooth transfer, and our pastoral organisation supports learning and the well-being of our students.  Each year group is led by a Year Leader, and students are placed in one of nine tutor groups.

Our stand on bullying is clear and unequivocal: bullying is never acceptable and students are encouraged to talk about their concerns with someone they can trust.  They will be taken seriously and the situation dealt with sensitively and promptly.

Assessment, Recording & Reporting

Students are regularly assessed across subjects to ensure work is at the appropriate level to support learning, to monitor progress and attainment and to inform parents.

Targets are set for all students as part of this process, and a Review Day allows us to work with them to discuss and review progress and agree targets for improvement.

Learning Support

We aim to offer all students a broad and relevant curriculum that meets their individual needs.  Where there are specific learning needs, our Learning Support team will work with students and parents to support learning and see students settle happily into school.  Our Special Educational Needs policy is available on request.
