Leeds City Academy is a unique and very special place to work. Our philosophy is  grounded equally in securing the highest professional standards and supporting and  caring for all professionals. As a key member of the White Rose Academies Trust and  ground-breaking Luminate Education Group, all professionals benefit from exceptional  CPD like no other in the City. A broad, varied and highly personalised package is well-established, driven by the latest 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.

Our academy is an extremely unique and amazing inner-city school, situated in the  Woodhouse area of Leeds. The student body has nearly doubled in size over the last three  years and now boasts just over 800 students in attendance. There is a vibrant, rich and  amazing culture in the academy, characterised by the over forty different countries and  first languages represented by our inspirational student body. Students and staff are  incredibly proud of their academy and determined to work ‘In Partnership’ to secure  further improvements and achievements.

We benefit from increasingly impressive facilities. The last twelve months have seen  significant investment in a comprehensive building and refurbishment programme,  resulting in a range of new specialist classrooms, learning and office spaces, new dining  facilities, updated sports accommodation and changing rooms. This improvement  programme will continue over the next twelve months, leading to improved specialist  teaching spaces and the transformation of our outside space so that students can enjoy  physical activity, relax and socialise with their friends in an amazing and inspirational  environment.
