About Us

We believe we offer a really outstanding Post 16 experience which is relevant for many Year 11 students following the completion of GCSEs. Entry to our Sixth Form is open to present Year 11 students but we are delighted to see so many students come and join us from other schools for their Post 16 studies. Our aim is to give students the opportunities and qualifications needed to progress and make the transition to Higher Education or the world of work.

We are a close knit welcoming community, in which students feel valued, supported and challenged. Strong student voice means that we shape our provision in response to the feedback from our students and their parent/carers to ensure that we are constantly improving and adapting to the ever changing demands of the wider economy. OFSTED visited in September 2013 and judged the Sixth Form provision to be "good" and "improving rapidly". Our 2014 results highlighted this rapid improvement with 56% of results at A*-B and 80% at C or better. Just over a third of our students who applied to University went on to Russell Group Universities, with others securing places on School Leavers' Programmes with companies such as KPMG.

The Post 16 programme at Allerton High includes a range of initiatives designed to enhance and enrich the experience of our students. This year Year 12 students will take part in Business and Employment programmes such as Building My Skills with Esh Construction as well as local and national enterprise challenges such as Leeds Enterprise Advisory Programme (LEAP). Our Post 16 team have been successful in reaching the Regional Finals of the Debating Matters competition in the past and are keen to improve on that. We are proud of our success in these areas in recent years.

2013-14 saw the launch of our exiting new Basketball Academy in partnership with Leeds Carnegie. This is a programme aimed at elite basketball students allowing them to follow academic level 3 programmes in combination with a coaching programme designed and delivered by Matt Newby - First Team Coach of the Carnegie Senior Team. The Academy has raised the profile of the need for students to combine academic success with sporting excellence. Last year our Captain secured a place at a prestigious prep school in America. We are confident that these opportunities will expand in the future.
