I am very proud to welcome you to Garforth Academy’s Sixth Form website. I believe that this website presents a clear picture of the exciting and innovative Sixth Form and School that I have the honour of leading. Garforth Academy is one of the most successful schools in the North of England. We believe our commitment to high standards continues to ensure all our students reach their potential with whatever skills they possess. There are no barriers to achievement in this Academy and teachers, parents and students work together to create an unbeatable team with one common goal - the best possible success for every child.
Our staff are highly qualified and dedicated professionals with a diverse range of talents and skills. They all work tirelessly to support the education of the children and young people at the Academy. That is why our examination results continue year on year to be amongst the best in the country.
We have a strong tradition of success that is built upon a firm foundation of strong pastoral care. We believe that every child is capable of exceeding our expectations and that a climate of order and security, focused on achievement, ensures their success.
In recent years our successes have been recognised by many organisations, commending us time and time again as an outstanding school. Ofsted described us as excellent in our recent inspection, and we continue to achieve success, regularly receiving awards for excellence. We are also a Specialist School in the Performing Arts, which has enabled us to develop many outstanding specialist facilities not normally found in a Comprehensive school.
Above all, Garforth Academy is committed to teamwork. We believe that by working together we can ensure success for everyone. Every child has unlimited potential, it is our duty to tap into that reservoir of talent so that everyone achieves their best.
Perhaps the best way to get a true flavour of our Academy is to visit and see us in action. I know you will be amazed! I look forward to meeting you soon.
