Leeds City Academy


Visit from Anthony Clavane

On Thursday 27th June we were very lucky to host the author and sports writer, Anthony Clavane.  

Anthony has written a number of books, which link his passion for football with his love of reminiscing about growing up in Leeds.  He has also written articles for newspapers including The Guardian.

A group of Year 9 boys were mesmerised upon hearing about his interviews with sportsmen including David Beckham, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.  The boys were then encouraged to ask each other questions in an interview style before writing up their interviews as a news article. 

The afternoon was a great success and Anthony praised our students for their brilliant questioning and complete engagement in the session.  We will certainly be inviting Anthony back to our school in the future.

Thank you Anthony!
