Exploring a World of Opportunities Together


Award winning Gledhow Primary is situated in the North of Leeds on Lidgett Lane, LS8. We are a school where children learn in a happy, caring and secure environment.

Everyone is encouraged and challenged to aim for the best that they can achieve in all that they do.

Our school develops independence in learning and values this equally alongside academic achievement in all areas of the curriculum.

Gledhow offers very high educational standards, an excellent enriched curriculum and an environment rich in the sports and arts.

Goodbye Year 6 - We will miss you!

What a way to say goodbye! The wonderful Year 6 children and the staff treated the whole school to the highlights from their end-of-year production! We will miss each and every one of them and wish them all the very best for continued success at high school. We know you will make Gledhow proud!


Den Building 2016 Year 1 & 5

"The best bit was getting soaked!" (Connor)

"I was a bit shy at first but then I made friends with the Year 5's." (Mollie)

"The whole day was amazing!" (Adam V)

Both Year 5 and Year 1 were a real credit to Gledhow as they quickly got into mixed groups and each member played their part. Much to the relief of the children, most of the dens were waterproof! It was a pleasure to see so many smiles and genuine team work! Well done Year 1 and Year 5!

Author, Kathryn White visits Gledhow - 24th March 

It's amazing what can happen if you dress up on World Book Day! Lucas in 1LA dressing up as a character from 'Here Comes the Crocodile' led to the author's visit and a workshop! The whole school were inspired to find plots and settings lurking in the news, documentaries and even amongst their family and friends!

What People say about Gledhow

Congratulations to you and your staff on a wonderful concert / Nativity in St Edmund’s church today!  It was a first class performance at all levels and most enjoyable.  You combined the Christian message with “A Christmas Carol” with skill and humour.  The children obviously enjoyed every minute. Thank you.
With best wishes for Christmas and the New Year,
Ann O’Grady  (Grandmother)

Head Teacher's Blog

Dear Parents, Carers and Friends of the school,

I hope (like me) that you have been enjoying the mid-September sunshine and warmth over the past few weeks. It's been a great way to start the term for staff and children alike.


Our building work continues apace and last Tuesday we 'took possession', on time, of our school hall, much to the excitement of the children. Assemblies, PE lessons and of course hot school dinners will now be served up to the children in our freshly renovated facility.


We are assured that the whole building project, pristine and new, will be completed around Valentine's Day, 2017, and we wish to thank parents for their patience and support as we all deal on a daily basis with the pressures and inconveniences which major building work inevitably involves.


We are of course looking forward to our Harvest Festival celebration on Thursday, 6th October. With all the recent sunshine, according to The Times, UK farmers are apparently enjoying a bumper Harvest including a 'surprisingly good wheat crop with a decent yield and of excellent quality'. We trust that we will likewise be able to have a bumper Harvest collection of tinned and dry food to resource St George's Crypt, in their work with homeless and vulnerable adults in Leeds.


We are also looking forward this week to meeting four teachers from Norway who will be visiting the school on Wednesday to observe outstanding practice and teaching around our school. Remember to say ''hei', 'halla' or 'heisann' (which all mean 'good morning' in Norwegian) if you meet them around school!!!


Wishing you a happy and enjoyable last week in September.


Mark Trudgill
