Governor Info


Welcome from the Chair of Governors

Welcome to our website.  Thank you for coming to take a look and I hope you enjoy finding out more about life at The South Leeds Academy.

I hope that this website provides you with useful information which will help you decide whether our Academy is the right environment in which your child study and develop.

We have tried to reflect the activities and initiatives taking place in the academy and the Governing Body are working to ensure that the whole school community can part of the process - giving our students the best possible start in life.

Our Academy is situated in South Leeds and serves the communities around it, pupils are drawn mainly from this area although many have links with communities far from Leeds and the Academy celebrates the richness the diversity of cultures and experiences the students bring.  Our aim is to provide our young people with the best possible education and prepare them effectively for their next steps whether this is higher education, further training or employment.

As an Academy working within the Delta Academies Trust we now have access to additional resources and expertise that will enable us to go from strength to strength.  We continue to forge strong relationships with our local primary schools, to call on expertise from our other partners and to do everything that we can to assure the best possible education and school experience for our students.  These young people though are our best ambassadors; displaying their enthusiasm for learning, their confidence in their own abilities and their care for each other.

This website will give you a glimpse of what we are about but I hope that you will come and see us at work too.

We all look forward to welcoming you to our Academy and give you the chance to see us work at first hand.
