Leeds West Academy is an over-subscribed 11-16 school. Thriving in a state of the art building with stunning views over the River Aire, our Academy is committed to delivering an outstanding education to each and every one of our students. We provide exceptional life training; harnessing the skills and fortifying the aspirations of young people, who we know will transform the region and provide a positive, progressive contribution to society. Our vision at Leeds West Academy is clear: we will be Ofsted rated as outstanding within three years.

Like any school or academy, having committed Governing Body members is extremely important. 


Our Local Accountability Board (LAB) currently has a vacancy for Parents/Carers, who we know can bring a particularly valuable contribution to the team.  The three key roles of a LAB are to:


  • ensure that it has a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction 

  • oversee the financial performance of the school/academy 

  • monitor the educational performance of the school/academy

There are six planned LAB meetings per academic year, starting at 5.30pm.  The first meeting of the 2019-20 academic year is on Monday 30th September 2019, with the next meeting scheduled for Tuesday 19th November 2019.

An application form can be found below or by contacting the school on 0113 229 5454.  If you wish to apply, please return the completed form to Vicki at or to the postal address included on the application form.

Closing Date:      Friday 20th September at 3pm
