A high school has inaugurated 23 million pound sterling buildings that will allow it to teach more than 1200 students in Leeds. The Ruth Gorse Academy is significantly larger than most high schools and serves a disadvantaged area that is much larger than what is normally found throughout the country. The academy is named in honor of Ruth Gorse, who was a brilliant director of physical education at The Morley Academy and, before that, at The King's School in Pontefract. The GORSE Academy Trust continues to offer exceptional opportunities to Trust students.
The Ruth Gorse Academy opened in September at the headquarters of the Morley Academy, after ministers approved the plans. Newcomers to the teaching profession can train directly with SCITT at schools owned by The GORSE Academies Trust and also at partner schools in the local area. The Gorse Academies Trust considers it a philosophy that all students, regardless of their background, can excel when given the right combination of outstanding teaching and rigorous discipline. The Ruth Gorse Academy has benefited significantly from the SCITT program and is thrilled to have many SCITT alumni and their School Direct legacy as part of its staff team.
