Our ethos and values

The Grammar School at Leeds is a place of learning and success in all areas – academically, in wider co-curricular life and in personal relationships. Students flourish in an ambitious and aspirational environment, but crucially they also enjoy a friendly and caring community. Every child is valued and supported by our dedicated team of staff to become confident, caring and resilient, capable of high achievement and able to rise to any challenge.

The school has a reputation, established over many centuries, for excellence in intellectual, physical and creative pursuits; respecting tradition yet encouraging innovation. Our students benefit from generous staff ratios that enable us to offer a rich and stimulating curriculum and a sensitive pastoral system. Students are aware of the importance of developing social skills, showing mutual respect for, and commitment to, each other and the wider community.

The pastoral care of the pupils is outstanding in all age groups and, together with the excellent arrangements to ensure their welfare, health and safety, are strengths of the school. These elements contribute to the resounding success with which the school meets its aim to create for pupils a friendly and caring community, and promote the pupils’ excellent personal development.
