Priesthorpe Sports Specialist College
Priesthorpe Lane, Leeds Farsley
0113 257 2618


Priesthorpe is a popular and over-subscribed community Specialist Sports College of 1200 students, 160 of whom are in the Sixth Form. The school is situated in LS28 close to the boundary between Leeds and Bradford. Most of our students come from Farsley, Stanningley, Pudsey and Calverley, with a further 20% from Bradford.

Priesthorpe School is one of three Pudsey Schools which together make up the Pudsey Consortium which shares post-16 provision, giving opportunities to students to study a wider range of subjects. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum at Key Stages 3 and 4 and are committed to enabling our students to choose a learning programme which suits them, with ever increasing vocational opportunities.

There is a vast array of additional school activities and we are proud of our tradition of performance in Sport, Drama and Music. As a Specialist Sports College we provide the focal point of much of the sporting activity in our community, as well as that in local primary and secondary schools. We are proud to have achieved the Investors in People award and the Inclusion Chartermark.

Our excellent staff are professional and caring, with a common determination to work together to raise standards and achievement at all levels in Public Examinations, with many gaining places at University and college. We celebrate success, recognising and rewarding the hard work and achievements through merits, certificates, post cards, presentation assemblies and special reward trips.

We are recognised as a friendly and caring school. At Priesthorpe each student is assigned to a tutor and Head of Year with whom they will usually remain for five years. The tutors and Heads of Year work closely with students and their families, monitoring progress and offering support and guidance. There is a highly proactive School Council which meets regularly and forms an essential part of the whole school consultation process.

We welcome visitors at any time during the working day. To find out more about the school please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
