Where is the Cluster?
In North West Leeds, formed by a group of schools and Ireland Wood Children’s Centre
What does the Cluster do?
We provide information and advice on services and activities for children, young people and their families living in the cluster or attending one of the cluster schools or Ireland Wood Children’s Centre.
We organise a range of services and events for the Cluster
Why do we need a new name and logo?
There are now other Clusters in the North West of Leeds, so we want a name to represent the community where the Cluster Schools and the Children’s Centre are based. There is another Cluster that is nearby and covers parts of Leeds16
To come up with a name and logo for the Cluster that can be printed clearly in black and white and also in colour.
The logo and name must be clear when using in a small size – for example for a letterhead or leaflet.
This may be from local landmarks, names on maps and about the people involved – children and young people aged 0 – 19 and their families

Simrah Aziz, Sam Wakefield and Muzmail Ahmed were selected from their class Year 10 GCSE Food Technology class to pitch their new flavour of ice cream in Asdas version of Dragons. The winning flavour would go on to be manufactured for Asdas Loaded Ice Creams range.
The whole class worked hard to invent some fantastic new flavours of ice cream which included orange and passion fruit and popping candy and chocolate. After tough deliberation it was decided that chocolate pretzel and salted caramel would be taken into the den.
At Asda HQ the RTS team successfully presenting their idea and package design to four of Asdas senior team. The pupils were shown also treated to a tour around Asda House where they were allowed to put real products through a consumer taste test and given a great insight into the work that goes on behind the scenes Asda. The judges finally made their decision on the winning flavour; the Ralph Thoresby team were awarded a very close second.
Well done to you all.

On Friday 1st February, the Year 12 Geographers spent the day undertaking fieldwork on the east coast. Our first stop was at Hornsea where we observed the different methods of hard engineering that have been put in place to protect the coastline from erosion. We then visited Mappleton further down the coast to assess the effectiveness of the coastal management scheme there. Students were actively involved, measuring the beach gradient at various intervals. The data collected will be used to complete follow-up tasks back in the classroom. A great day was had by all!
