This afternoon Cllr Richard Harker and I visited our two new Academies...

We moved on to the new South Leeds Academy to welcome Ed Balls MP, Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families and Rosie Winterton MP, Minister for Yorkshire. Colin Bell, the Academy Principal, was generous in his praise for Education Leeds and the contribution colleagues have made to the successful opening this week. The students looked incredibly smart in their jackets and ties and all talked about how proud they were to be at the new Academy.

The Academy inherits a strong foundation to build on with this years wonderfully improved GCSE results and we are all looking forward to the school going from strength to strength supported by their sponsor, the Schools Partnership Trust.
