Commendations for Leeds West Academy

Nominated teachers and support staff from Leeds West Academy joined The White Rose Academies Trust at the Leeds City College Group's Awards Night at The Queens Hotel on Thursday 14th December.

The Group Awards Night, also attended by Keighley College and Leeds College of Music, is an evening to celebrate the incredible efforts of individuals and teams from across The Leeds City College group, sponsor of The White Rose Academies Trust.

The awards were led by the Chief Executive of the College Group and were followed by a summary from the Principals of each Academy in The White Rose Academies Trust.

Together, Chris Stokes (LEA), Christian Wilcocks (LWA) and Jackie Rose (LCA) highlighted the improvements and achievements each Academy has made in the last year alongside an entertaining reflective video adapted the theme of ‘The A Team’.
