Principal’s Welcome

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.

At Elliott Hudson College, we understand that there are no shortcuts or easy fixes. We aim to provide the very best academic education possible, in facilities that are second to none and I hope that you want to join us.

Executive Principal’s Welcome

On behalf of everyone connected to The GORSE Academies Trust I should like to take the opportunity to welcome you to Elliott Hudson College. The development of the college is one of the most exciting initiatives that we have seen within the Trust in recent years, and early indications regarding our first A Level results for 2017 suggest that we have set a new benchmark for academic performance for Post-16 education across the Leeds city region, and the country more widely.

We are also excited about the wonderful new facility that the college now has as its permanent base, situated in the White Rose Office Park.  This brings together truly world class facilities with standards of professional excellence which are exceptional.

We have been amazed to have so many students choose to join us in our first three years and we know that there has been even more interest for the year to come. In developing the concept of Elliott Hudson College we were determined to ensure that we established an institution which would challenge the status quo across the city region. The college is unashamedly academic and is, we know, playing a significant part in raising standards of achievement for 16 to 18 year olds – and in ensuring that young people from our city, including those from areas of significant deprivation, secure qualifications which unlock the doors of the best universities and employers in the world.

Sir John Townsley
Executive Principal
