Temple Moor High School is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form located in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. In recent years, it has received 'Science College' status.

The school was founded in 1956 as Temple Moor Grammar School, a status it retained until 1973. At its inception, the school was male-only. However, this was later abolished as the times changed, and is currently a mixed gender institution (1992). The school became associated with notable local families, most credibly the DeLacy family, whom are recognized within the Temple Newsam area.

The school was built on several old mine shafts, possibly related to the coal mines at Temple Newsam. The mines were only recently discovered when constructing the new school building.

On 16 May 2007 construction workers punctured a chlorine tank whilst demolishing the school's disused swimming pool, forcing evacuation of the school.

Temple Moor is the first Leeds school to ever reach the Carnegie Champion Schools Final in its 30-year history.


The School is oversubscribed, and currently has a roll of around 1,240 pupils.

Temple Moor local feeder primary schools are: Temple Newsam Halton Primary School, Crossgates Primary School, Whitkirk Primary School, Colton Primary School, St. Peters Primary School and Austhorpe Primary School.


In its 2013 Ofsted inspection the school was rated as Grade 2 (Good). In recent years, at least 95% of students have achieved GCSE/GNVQs.

House system

The school's original houses were based on names of local historical families: Manston (red), Scargill (white), Smeaton(yellow) and Irwin (purple). The DeLacy family is associated with Temple Newsam, an estate and country house situated nearby, from which the school derived its name and its Templar Cross emblem.

The House System was reintroduced in 2006-2007 - as part of the school's 50 year anniversary - with the houses named after stars appropriate to the school's Science College specialist status:

Pupils' ties include house colours.
