All three of our academies have gone through a significant transformation resulting in all receiving Ofsted grading’s of Good with Outstanding Leadership at Leeds City Academy.


All three of The White Rose Academies were selected for the 2018 Parliamentary Review of Secondary Education.

We are proud to serve three communities with an IDACI quintile of 5.
