The Trust’s vision is to be an exceptional and responsive academy group providing life changing education, skills and experiences for individuals in our academies and in their communities. Our academies are outward facing schools, working closely with local secondary and primary schools/academies and other educational institutions on a national and international basis. They will also develop close links with other training and education providers including local colleges, universities and private training providers.


Our academies will be part of their local community and will develop relationship with community groups and employers. The aim of collaboration in every case is to raise standards of achievement of students. White Rose Academies Trust believes that by working in partnership with Leeds City College we will be well placed to provide an innovative local solution to the educational needs of Leeds to benefit and support more young people across the city and raise their ambitions and aspirations.


The college, as academy sponsor and strategic partner, believes that it can make a unique contribution to the work of our academies through its expertise and national and international networks. The profile of Leeds City College as the largest educational provider in the area will be of great benefit to the students and staff of White Rose Academies Trust. As sponsor the college will play an active part in developing any specialisms with extensive work placements, alongside the design and possible delivery of vocational qualifications. The college is also keen to promote the employability prospects of the students attending our academies through a range of activities.
