Teaching school

In 2011 Harrogate Grammar School was awarded one of the first Teaching Schools in England, a designation entitling us to take a lead role in school-centred training and professional development of staff.

We are at the centre of an Alliance of schools, working with other partners including primary, secondary and special schools and higher education institutions, to deliver high quality support for teachers and further improve standards. Inspired by the stunning Red Kite birds of prey that soar the skies above our region, our partnership is known as the Red Kite Teaching School Alliance.

To be awarded Teaching School status is a tremendous accolade for our school and our partners and demonstrates our already high standards in teaching and learning. We are committed to further enhancing the professional development of our staff and becoming a hub of excellence in training new teachers to the profession, providing school to school support, continuous professional and leadership development. Being at the forefront of these exciting initiatives supports our vision to be a world class school, a dynamic and supportive learning community that inspires a love of learning for our students, enabling them to achieve their full potential.
