Welcome to Leeds East Academy
The Sixth Form was judged to be Good with Outstanding features in the last two Ofsted inspections.
The Sixth Form at Leeds East Academy provides a unique learning environment. We have the expertise and experience of being able to prepare young people to progress to higher education and to enter the world of work.
We enjoy extremely good relationships with both Leeds University and Leeds Metropolitan University which allows our students to apply for various schemes run by the universities as well as preparing students for university life.
We have been working with our partnership school Leeds West Academy and we will be offering the A level courses at Leeds West Academy. The school will provide transport to take Leeds East students to Leeds West everyday if they do decide to study there. For further information please contact Mrs S Abed on 01132731964
