Education

When you have children that are at school age or even just below, finding schools that are both local to your new home and good enough to be trusted with the education of your offspring is a hugely important and tough job. At Redrow, we are aware of this, and want to make the job of finding a school as stress free as possible. Local primary school Ledger Lane Academy is perfect for children aged up to 11. For secondary age children, Silcoates School is a local independent school held in high regard. Similarly, Queen Elizabeth Grammar School has a fantastic reputation for academic success.

You'll never be short of something to do living at Scholars Gate. With a fantastic multiplex cinema located in Wakefield, along with Horsforth Golf Club being about half an hour's drive away, there are some great ways to spend an afternoon. If you want to play sports, Rawdon Golf and Lawn Tennis Club and Farsley Cricket and Bowling Club are both easily reached. If your idea of a good afternoon is spent watching sport rather than playing it, Leeds is home to a range of top quality sports venues. Elland Road is the home of Leeds United, while the city also plays host to rugby union and rugby league clubs. The cricket ground at Headingley is a test cricket venue, and also where Yorkshire play the majority of their home games.
