Welcome to Elliott Hudson College, I hope that our website gives you a flavour of what our community is like, but to get a true feel for the college I urge you to come and visit us, either at one of our open events or make an appointment and see the college during a typical working day. I know that you will be impressed.
Despite significant national changes to A Level examinations I am delighted that our first set of results were truly outstanding and demonstrate that the progress of students at the college is exceptional. We simply believe that with hard work, a supportive culture and great teaching, all students can succeed. It is these foundations that underpin our college, hard work, supportive culture and great teaching; together they allow students to achieve academic qualifications which support their progression to world class universities and careers of choice and significance …Read more.
Our aspiration is to ensure that young people in the Leeds city region enjoy access to a truly inspirational and academic post-16 education. We do this by creating a culture that demands and supports excellence, focused upon developing successful study habits in students and expertise in teachers. We are committed to providing a platform for students to thrive and excel enabling them to progress with confidence and optimism to the next stage of their lives.
We are a partner of GORSE SCITT (formerly Leeds Teaching School Alliance) which offers a dynamic route into teaching, providing high quality Initial Teacher Training around Leeds. New entrants to the teaching profession are able to train directly with the SCITT in schools within The GORSE Academies Trust and also in partner schools in the local area.
The trust has an outstanding record of recruiting trainees from its programme to newly qualified teaching positions within its schools and graduates from the SCITT are in high demand in schools outside of the Alliance.
As a new college we have been particularly pleased to recruit from the SCITT tremendous expertise in Physics, English, Art, Music and Social Science. The quality of the NQTS we have recruited has meant they have “hit the ground running”, delivering excellent, academic teaching to our students from their first days with us. Trainees on both enhancement and placement with us have also richly contributed to the wider work of the college.
