Leeds City Academy


Principal's Welcome

A truly unique and inspirational school.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Leeds City Academy, a truly unique and inspirational school.

Having only recently joined the Academy as Principal, I have witnessed how polite, respectful and motivated Leeds City Academy students are to learn and achieve their very best. During my initial visits I have been amazed by how incredibly welcoming our students are as well as their strong commitment to their education. Our students display a tremendous sense of partnership, both in lessons, around the Academy and within the wider community.

During lessons students clearly respect and work in close partnership with their teachers, strongly exhibiting the Academy’s values of Aspire Together- Achieve Together. Across the coming months we will fully embrace these values in our mission to achieve academic excellence. Starting with the evolution of student leadership and a key focus on providing students with the necessary life skills required to be successful and empowered young people, ready for their futures.

Leeds City Academy is a school with a growing reputation for high quality and impactful work and I feel immensely proud to be leading the school through the next chapter in its transformation to becoming a provider of a world class education.
