The White Rose Academies Trust is a local Trust dedicated to raising and fulfilling the ambitions of young people. Our academies are based in some of the most diverse and challenging areas of the UK, but all have at their core a truly inspirational student community. We are confident that our students will be the leaders of the future and that under their leadership, communities and nations will be radically transformed.
Leeds City Academy is one of the most rapidly improving schools within the Leeds area and county of West Yorkshire. We are an 11-16 Academy and one of three schools within the White Rose Academies Trust, a Trust recognised nationally for its ground-breaking and transformational impact on the lives of the young people it serves. The academy had a Section 5 Inspection in May 2019 achieving an overall 'Good' judgement with Leadership and Management judged as 'Outstanding'.
Our highly motivated and talented students are at the very centre of everything we do and the shared mission of all our stakeholders is to work ‘In Partnership’ in securing the aspirations and ambitions of every one of our young people. Our academy is a unique and truly inspirational place to work, enhanced by our wonderful students who come from a diverse range of cultures, heritage and experiences; a significant proportion of students speak English as an additional language.
Leeds East Academy is a diverse and vibrant school community which has recently been judged as ‘Good’ across all areas of the Ofsted framework. In the Ofsted report inspectors commented; "Leaders' aspirations for the school are high. They are determined that all of their pupils, regardless of background, will achieve as highly as possible. Leaders have created an ambitious and optimistic culture across the school".
The school has been on a rapid journey of improvement securing a progress 8 score in 2018 in line with the national average. Housed within a state-of-the-art school building, Leeds East Academy is now the premier choice of school for families in the local area. Leeds East Academy is also a highly desirable and dynamic establishment for ambitious education professionals, who will be joining a forward thinking organisation committed to securing the highest educational, professional and personal standards for the community we serve.
Leeds West Academy is a school with a remarkable sense of community and a strong and safe culture, a place where staff and students can thrive. As judged by Ofsted as ‘Good’ in May 2019, teaching is strong and the support we provide for our students and staff is unrivalled. With improved results year-on-year since 2016, 2019 saw our students secure the best results in the school’s history. In short, there is no better time to join Leeds West Academy, as a colleague, a leader or as a student.
Leeds West Academy is a fabulous place to work, accommodated in £30 million pound world-class facilities which opened in late 2011. As part of the White Rose Academies Trust (a member of the Luminate Education Group), we have a strong reputation of being a caring and supportive organisation. The academy also benefits from an exceptional in-house Trust CPD programme, driven by the latest in educational research, focused on the development of all professionals in the organisation at each career stage. Colleagues train with us, grow with us and progress with us.
