Wharfedale Action for School Places


We are holding an event to show you the statistics and other information about lack of Secondary School Places in the Wharfedale Valley, and how this will be further affected by new housing in the valley. BiW Parish Council will also be speaking about the effects of proposed new housing.

Although Menston is not part of the Ilkley Grammar School priority area, if a new school is built Menston will be included as part of the intake. WASP have also been talking to BMDC on how they can contribute to expansion of schools in the Leeds area (Guiseley) to help the current situation in Menston.

Please share and come and show your support. If we don't address this now, then your child may be sent to Keighley as there are plenty of spare places there!! 

 The event is being held at The Queens Hall, BIW. 8pm on Wednesday 23rd September. It is for everyone in the Valley not just Burley-in-Wharfedale but Menston, Addingham, Ben Rhydding and Ilkley!
