Leeds West Academy


Student of the Week

Going above and beyond in Technical Theatre

Congratulations to Jack, who is Leeds West Academy’s Student of the Week.

Jack is a mature, focused and conscientious student who is well known in our school community for his long-term support of backstage operations in the Performing Arts Department. This term, Jack has carefully planned his time around his learning to ensure he can continue to support the runnings of our very complex theatre space.

Mr Norton, Performing Arts Technician, said: “Jack took time out of his weekend to provide technical support for the Flex Dance show, which took place in the Academy Theatre on Sunday. The whole Performing Arts department are impressed with his skills, knowledge and professionalism, which he demonstrated in carrying out this task. I'd like to stress that Jack led on all technical operations for this event, which makes it even more praiseworthy. Great work Jack, well done.”  

Mr Wilcocks adds: "Congratulations, Jack. Leeds West Academy is fortunate to have many students like yourself who go above and beyond to support our programme of extra-curricular activities. Your professionalism and willingness to help at the weekend is an outstanding demonstration of your commitment to our school. I look forward to seeing more of your technical stagecraft throughout this term and next year."

Tickets for all Leeds West Academy productions can be secured online via TicketSource.
