Leeds City Academy


Ethos and Values

Aspire together – Achieve together

We are committed to providing the best possible learning experience for all our students and believe that high standards of behaviour are fundamental to students taking full advantage of their learning opportunities and achieving their potential.  

At Leeds City Academy teachers and students are on the same team. We share the same goal, for all our students to be successful.    


We believe that education can transform lives, we actively encourage a growth mind-set, building self-confidence and pro-active behaviours. We set high expectations, ambitions and values for everyone and develop skills for students to become our successful leaders of the future.  


We strive to ensure all students make the fastest progress they can and achieve the best possible outcomes. We are determined that all children regardless of background will achieve and be prepared for life beyond our academy and strive to be the best we can be, actively and with pride.  


We respect the individual, relishing the contribution that diversity brings. We celebrate the dignity and unique worth of the individual irrespective of race, colour, class, creed or gender and are proud both to be an integral part of and to serve our local communities.
