Garforth / ˈ ɡ ɑr f ər θ / is a town within the City of Leeds metropolitan borough. in West Yorkshire. England. The 2001 Census lists 23,892 residents in the Garforth and Swillington ward: 80.57% of whom are homeowners, 20% more than the average for Leeds. Garforth itself has 15,394 of those people. [ 1 ] Garforth was in the parliamentary constituency of Elmet until the 2010 general election. when it was incorporated into the new constituency of Elmet and Rothwell. Garforth's population decreased to 14,957 in 2011. [ 2 ] [ 3 ]


Garforth owes its size to expansion in the 17th and 18th centuries during which the local land-owning Gascoigne family ran several coalmines in the area. The surrounding settlements of Micklefield. Kippax. Swillington. Methley and Allerton Bywater Great and Little Preston are all villages that prospered and grew as a result of the coal industry. Nowadays manufacturing and motor-vehicle repair account for more than a third of the workforce in the area [ citation needed ]

More recent expansion can also be traced to a combination of overall economic success in Leeds, and that Garforth is served by transport links. The A1 and M1 are minutes away, and both have recently been linked by an extension of the M1 which passes to the West and North of the town, with two nearby access points at Junctions 46 and 47. The M1 extension led to rapid development of commercial, light industrial and residential sites clustered around Junctions 46 and 47. The town rail link to Kippax and Castleford was closed under the Beeching Axe of the 1960s.

Garforth has been home to 1st Garforth Scout Group since 1908.


Originally a coal mining area, the collieries of much of East Leeds and surrounding areas closed in the 1960s, although further South mining was still strong in the 1990s and is still prevalent to some degree today. Garforth has increasingly become a commuter town of Leeds [ citation needed ] There is a light industrial estate to the north of the town which provides some employment, such as Ginetta Cars. while the neighbouring Thorpe Business Park in Colton also provides employment. Garforth's rail connections and access to the M1. A1(M) and M62 have made it a desirable area for commuters to live.


Garforth's amenities are similar to other towns in the City of Leeds, such as Otley and Wetherby. Garforth has a Tesco supermarket, The Original Factory Shop department store, several public houses in the town centre, a Co-operative. and other shops such as newsagents, charity shops, travel agents and banks. Garforth civic amenities include a library and a One Stop Centre run by Leeds City Council. A coffee shop on Main Street functions partly as a social enterprise. giving its profits to projects in the town. There are also a number of take away food outlets.

Garforth has eight traditional public houses and a number of social/affiliated clubs. The pubs are Miller & Carter Steakhouse (Formerly The Old George), The Gaping Goose, The Crusader, The Podger, The Bird in Hand, The Newmarket Inn, The Miners Arms and The Lord Gascoigne.

(2002) and Beacon School status (2003), and OFSTED described the school in 2010 (before it changed to academy status ) as an "outstanding school". [2]

In literature

In the book The Modfather. David Lines describes his time at the school in the late 1970s and early 1980s in great detail. He described the school as looking like a cold hard slab of institutionalised concrete and, after leaving a leafy Nottinghamshire grammar school, described his shock on his first day of the pupils wearing 'menacing boots' and watching his classmates 'literally kicking seven shades out of each other'. [3]

Academic performance

The school gets the best GCSE results in Leeds LEA according to the Yorkshire Evening Post . [ citation needed ] As a result of improvements in the past decade, the headteacher, Paul Edwards, received a knighthood in the New Year Honours 2009 for services to local and national education. [4] The school has since got a new headteacher, Andy Woodhouse.

Mike Dobsons Estate Agents are keen sponsors of the annual student planner of Garforth Academy .
The planner is an essential organisational tool, containing lots of interesting subject specific information as well as general hints and tips on study technique. The Planner also incorporates a homework diary that provides parents with a useful means of keeping up to date with their child’s progress.

As a former student of Garforth Academy, together with other members of staff, Mike Dobson feels that the considerable investment made in the local community, such planners will help improve pupil learning and help pupils to take responsibility for their own academic achievements throughout their school life.

Academy Reception, general enquiries: 0113 2 127 127

Student Support Mrs L Barber (KS3); Mr A Cunningham (KS4); Mr A Barnett (KS5)

Learning Support (Special Educational Needs): Mr J Yaull, Assistant Principal

Admissions Procedure: Mr T O'Reilly

Curriculum & Reports: Mrs A Young

Enquiries regarding your child: The relevant Head of Year or Form Tutor.

Regular and punctual attendance is essential.
Except for illness, no student should be absent from school without the permission of the Headteacher in advance. Parents are asked not to arrange family holidays or outings in term time; such absences are undesirable because they severely disrupt the student's programme of learning and assessment.

On the first day of all absences parents are requested to phone the Student Absence Line at the Academy (0113 2 127 128) and to follow this with a note of explanation to the form tutor on their return. In the event of possible long illness parents are asked to contact the College as soon as possible and, where appropriate, work will be set for the students to complete at home.

Students, who arrive late, after 8.25am but before 8.40, should report to their form tutor, who will record the late arrival. Where students are persistently late appropriate action will be taken and parents informed. Attendance and punctuality information is recorded on reports. Students arriving after 8.40am should report to reception.

Refreshments are available freshly made on the premises during first and second break times. All students, years 7 to 11, must eat lunch at Academy. Facilities are provided within Academy to either buy a cafeteria style lunch or to eat their own packed lunch in specified areas. Our College meals are excellent, with a good choice of hot or cold food. If you think your child may be entitled to free school meals contact the Leeds City Council Benefits Helpline on 0113 247 7247.

Sample Daily Menu:

  • Homemade Soup of the day: Leek & Potato Served with freshly baked French Bread rolls.

An extensive selection of different salad choices is available from our fan-chilled salad bar. Salad variation alters daily.

Panini sandwiches are made fresh to order, various fillings available with frequent specials.

A large selection of healthy nutritious sandwiches, served on an extensive range of French, seeded and traditional breads, eg:

  • Chicken Caesar Salad on Poppy Seed Knots
  • Roasted Vegetable Fajita wraps

Fresh fruit is available daily with exotic variations, such as watermelon and fresh pineapple. These are proving to be very popular along with the more traditional fruits on offer.

All beverages available on site comply with government guidelines. New drinks ideas, like pure juice Smoothies along with freshly squeezed orange juice are available.

The Academy operates a cashless system for paying for Academy meals, using a computerised finger print registration scheme. Students "load" their accounts using the revaluation machines, located around the Academy, or parents can top up accounts via cheques or cash sent to reception. This system helps the Academy to monitor eating patterns to support our Healthy Schools Initiative.

Students are issued with a Student Planner that contains information about their daily timetable, homework and school events. Students are expected to enter homeworks set in their planner and this is checked, monitored and signed by their Form Tutor. We ask that parents also check and monitor homework and sign to show that this has been done. The planner can also be used as a method of communication between home and school.

Homework is considered to be an integral part of the school curriculum. It provides a valuable framework for encouraging independent learning. Parents can give valuable support by helping students to develop regular working habits and discuss their work at home.

At the start of the year a homework timetable is provided so that students and parents know what is expected. As students move through the school, the focus on independent learning develops, particularly with examination coursework which involves sustained commitment over a longer period of time.

Homework is likely to involve a range of activities including research, extension of activities begun in lessons, consolidation, reading and revision. ICT as a tool for completing homework can be applied; this may involve the presentation of a homework piece or fact finding through use of Internet research.

Saturday 9 July 2011
In the past 30 years of his career, Billy Bragg has recorded hit singles, composed Top Ten albums and written political anthems while blending elements of folk & punk rock and singing honest songs from the heart.
Billy Bragg embarked on a solo UK tour on 1st December 2010 and he will be headlining the Main Stage at Garforth Arts Festival 2011.
"…a formidable, inquisitive and globetrotting combination of story-teller, historian, activist, father, enthusiast, pilgrim, entertainer, minstrel, humorist, rambler, sermoniser and scholar …I often turn to no-nonsense, nimble-witted, worldly-wise Billy Bragg." - Paul Morley, The Guardian. Website: HUGH MASEKELA Hugh Masekela has been at the heart of the music of his country since the 1960s; his soaring, joyful trumpet sound that brims with warmth and optimism, continues as an expression of resistance and a celebration of resilience.
“After 20 years, Hugh Masekela still performs with magisterial ease. He's as much a charismatic orator as musician, and much of his magic is to do with timing. He sang with a wild abandon; he sent trumpet lines plunging and soaring; he cajoled the audience; he beat an African bell until I thought it would crack; and, in the old classic Stimela ("Steam Train"), he told the story with all the sound effects.” - Telegraph SALSA CELTICA Salsa Celtica's synthesis of Scottish and Irish traditional music with all the Latin American elements of salsa has taken them and their music all over the world. In the last ten years the group has been a hit equally at major celtic, jazz, world music and salsa festivals. Their albums have topped the New York and L.A. salsa charts and European world music charts, the band has been nominated for folk music awards and appeared as themselves in a feature film. Their line-up combines some of Scotland and Ireland's most exciting traditional musicians together with a stellar group of world, jazz and salsa musicians from the U.K. and Latin America. Salsa Celtica is a stunning combination of virtuosity and energy, making them one of the most exciting groups on the world music circuit today. Started in Edinburgh and Glasgow in 1995 Salsa Celtica has gone on to invent their own genre and then take it around the world and back again to critical and public acclaim. The group has released four studio albums, most recently "El Camino" also to critical and public acclaim. With a new studio album set for release in 2011 as well as a live album and DVD the band look set to push further their celtic salsa mission… "A stunning marriage of musical styles. " - The Scotsman
"Scene stealers. " - The Observer, UK
"This unique group is a dynamic force on the world music scene" - Songlines UK
Website: GARFORTH JAZZ ROCK BAND The Garforth Jazz Rock Band was formed in October of 2003 as part of the Garforth Community Arts School operated by, and based at, Garforth Community College in Garforth, East Leeds.

I was the first African-American writer of the Realist movement.

Literary scholars suggest that the realistic dialect my characters speak, including Huck Finn and Jim, helped America find its national voice.

The following passage exemplifies my writing style:

I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there’s a pair of us—don’t tell!
They’d banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

The following passage exemplifies my writing style.

The fighting had been hard and continuous; that was attested by all the senses. The very taste of battle was in the air. All was now over; it remained only to succor the wounded and bury the dead; to "tidy up a bit," as the humorist of a burial squad put it. A good deal of "tidying up" was required. As far as one could see through the forests, among the splintered trees, lay wrecks of men and horses. Among them moved the stretcher-bearers, gathering and carrying away the few who showed signs of life. Most of the wounded had died of neglect while the right to minister to their wants was in dispute.

•post-Civil War South
•New England
•Gold Coast

Last winter she got the jaybirds to bangeing here, and I believe she'd 'a' scanted herself of her own meals to have plenty to throw out amongst 'em, if I had n't kep' watch.

Translator Hub - Microsoft Translator

Microsoft Translator Hub

The Translator Hub is a free extension of the Microsoft Translator service. It is fully integrated into the Translator Text API and the Collaborative Translation Framework (CTF). With the Hub, enterprises and language service providers can build translation systems that understand the terminology used in their own business and industry. Your customized translation system will then easily integrate into your existing applications, workflows and websites, across multiple types of devices, through the regular Microsoft Translator Text API, by using the category parameter.

Customization with the Hub is both easy and adaptable. When using the Hub, users can start from a simple customization level starting with a few words (such as product names, etc.) in a dictionary, then use as little as one thousand parallel sentences to start customizing the actual translations. More details about the various levels of customization, based on available data, can be found on the Microsoft Translator Blog .

Why should I use the Hub?

Get Better Translations
Use your previously translated documents (leaflets, webpages, documentation, etc.) to build a translation system that reflects your domain-specific terminology and style, better than a generic translation system. Hub supports TMX, XLIFF, TXT, HTML, DOCX, XLSX and PDF document formats. The hub will combine your domain specific data with Microsoft's vast language knowledge to generate translation systems combining the best of both our large scale training data and your industry specific one. Given the appropriate type and amount of training data it is not uncommon to expect gains between 5 and 10, even 15 in some instances, BLEU points on translation quality by using the Hub, to customize your translations.

Securely translate anytime, anywhere on all your apps and services
Translation systems built with Hub are available through a cloud-based, high performance, highly scalable translation service that powers billions of translations every day. Your system can be seamlessly accessed and integrated into any product or business workflow, and on any device, via the Microsoft Translator API, which is available in SOAP, REST, and AJAX protocols.

Tap into the wisdom of your crowd
The Hub is integrated with Microsoft Translator’s Collaborative Translation Framework (CTF). Corrections, approvals, and votes are immediately fed into the Hub to continually improve your customized translation engines. Feedback and corrections submitted via the Translator Widget hosted on your website also feed the Hub, seamlessly improving the quality of your translations.

Build translation systems for native and endangered languages
Governments, universities and language preservation communities can use the Hub to build translation systems between any pair of languages, including languages not yet supported by Microsoft Translator, to reduce communication barriers. With communication gaps removed, communities are empowered and business can serve their people. A new language can be easily kick-started and improved over time with the support of an involved community, that regularly contributing to enriching the translation system.

"The Translator Hub by Microsoft is not only a powerful software that facilitates the proper communication between Maya and Spanish but it is also a very important tool to achieve one of the strategic goals of our university: to preserve and increase the use of Maya."
—Dr. Francisco J. Rosado May, Rector of Universidad Intercultural Maya de Quintana Roo

How do I get started?
