Values and vision

The Academy has established a unique, positive, and transformative ‘In Partnership’ culture which truly sets the school apart from others. This culture is founded and bult upon six key values that each drive and permeate everything the Academy does: behaviour, relationships and strategic decision making. The Academy In Partnership values are affectionally referred to as the DNA of Leeds City Academy and this is something the wonderful students, staff, parents and community are immensely proud of. The Academy strongly believe that their vision and strong culture will help not only to transform the lives of young people but transform the local communities which they so passionately serve.

The Academy has enjoyed an impressive period of transformation across the last 4 years and was judged as ‘Good’ overall by OFSTED in April 2019, securing an Outstanding judgement for the quality of Leadership and Management. The report commented that ‘Exceptional leadership from the highly skilled senior leadership team has improved all aspects of the school since the last inspection. The school’s culture is now inclusive and aspirational. Pupils develop the resilience needed to rise to the challenges set by staff. The school has been transformed and its overall effectiveness improved.’

We continue this journey of transformation and are determined to provide an exceptional quality of education and culture for all students at Leeds City Academy, with the ambition that all students excel both academically and as aspirational and inspirational young people. There is no better time to join Leeds City Academy, as a colleague, a leader or as a student.
