I started the day at the David Young Community Academy...

We were at the Academy for the Education Leeds Board Meeting and for the opportunity for members of the Board to look around the new Academy. Ros McMullen, the Principal of the David Young Community Academy, showed us around her fantastic building. The atmosphere, the culture and ethos, the discipline, the management, the team and the students were impressive to say the least. Attendance is improving, exclusions are coming down and the results are fantastic. The Academy is a brilliant addition to the learning landscape in East Leeds! On the basis of this visit who wouldn't want more Academies in Leeds!
