What Our Alumni Say



"I'm Hannah and I attended Leeds City Academy. During these five years, the school and its members have strengthened me and made me the person I am today if it wasn't for the amazing staff and the students in the WRAT I would have never made it as far as getting into the Grammar school bursary program and also getting accepted to attend. They helped me and pushed me beyond my limits and made me reach my full potential. I will forever be grateful for the WRAT and they will forever be my second home and family. "Once White Rose, Always White Rose" a phrase I will never forget."


"Since leaving high school, I have worked with Price Waterhouse Coopers on a digital technologies internship and have been lucky enough to earn a scholarship with them and the University of Leeds, including a fully funded degree in Computer Science BSc, An internship every summer working with their IT department, a year in industry and a secured job once I have earnt my degree. I now also tutor high school students and tour colleges with the firm encouraging people to get interested in the technology industry."



"Since leaving Leeds East Academy I have been given life-changing opportunities within the sport of boxing. I have recently signed a professional contract with MTK GLOBAL being one of the best if, not the best promoter in the world. I have achieved the opportunity of being a gym mate training alongside IBF World Champion Josh Warrington, also training alongside other top pro fighters including Reece Mould who is mandatory for British title and Maxi Hughes who is WBC International Champion, on a regular basis gaining experience that you cannot buy. Despite the fact I have only just turned 18 I have been recognised as a talented young prospect."
