In September 2019 Guiseley School joined the Red Kite Alliance. The Red Kite Teaching School Alliance members have a shared moral purpose to work together to improve the learning and achievement of all the young people their schools and to support other schools in the region to do the same.

This will be achieved by pursuing excellence in teaching and learning across Yorkshire and the Humber by offering training, support, research and development that is “by schools for schools”.

We firmly believe that we are ‘stronger together’ and that partnership and collaboration between practicing teachers in different schools is the only way to continually develop and improve teaching and learning for the benefit of students, parents, and the communities in which we work.

Guiseley School became a Foundation School on 01 January 2014 and along with some of our local schools acquired a Trust following a period of consultation. Trust schools have a different legal status, they remain part of the local authority system, but are supported by a charitable trust which appoints some of the Governors. The Governing Body of each school will continue to run the school and be responsible for its performance.
