Leeds West Academy

Towards Stonewall Champion Status

Sixth Form deliver powerful assemblies to raise awareness

The Leeds West Academy LGBT Campaign Group have been presenting a series of powerful assemblies as part of the Academy's aim to become a Stonewall School Champion.

Presentations were co-delivered by the LGBT Campaign Group with Ms Hutchinson to over 1,200 students during assemblies at the end of last term. The presentations garnered a fantastic response from students and teachers, who reported that the content was engaging and extremely valuable in spreading awareness of equality.

School Governor Ms J Rogers, who attended the presentations on Thursday, stated: "I cannot emphasise enough how impressed I am with Sixth Form students for taking the initiative to drive this forward. They really are quite relentless in achieving what they set out to do - and that is just the entrepreneurship that we see in our young people who make a difference and go on to succeed."
