Schools
The Morley Academy and Allerton High School are two of the best secondary schools that have been rated as outstanding by Ofsted. Primary schools in the area are Beeston Primary School and Greenmount Primary School who both pride themselves on being inclusive and a place that brings together children from a range of economic, social and ethnic backgrounds.
Transport
The best way to get around South Leeds is by bus and for only £4, you can travel around South Leeds as much as you want! Exciting times ahead also, White Rose Rail Station has been given the green light by the regional transport chiefs, meaning a new rail station between Morley and Cottingley will begin to be built in the near future.
Outdoors
If you’re wanting a fun and free day out, then Middleton Park is the place to visit. Spanning a whopping 630 acres made up of ancient woodland, a nature reserve, grass land, golf course and recreational areas really is a treasure of Leeds. You can even find Leeds Urban Bike Park which opened in 2017 and is a magnet for cyclists of all ages and abilities. Another fun and free day out is RSPB St Aidan's Nature Reserve – just a stone’s throw away from Leeds City Centre, the park really is something else. Whether you’re on your bike, on foot, riding your horse, you should always have your camera at the ready to take full advantage of the amazing views and wildlife
Food & Drink
The Northern Monk Refectory really is a hidden gem in Leeds. The kitchen hosts regular takeovers from local Leeds food vendors whilst the upstairs is an amazing event space which is available for private functions, weddings and corporate hire. If you’re looking for something that’s a little out of the ordinary, then this is the place to visit. Located in the Brewery Wharf area of Leeds, you’ll find the stunning little family run restaurant Ciao Bella. Surrounded by cobbled streets, the converted mill has been restored back to the brick and steel and serves traditional Italian dishes throughout the day and evening.
