History at Leeds West Academy

At Leeds West Academy we know students enjoy the study of History and we are passionate about offering a dynamic curriculum that enhances our students' understanding of the world they see around them.

Our five key aims are:

  • To fuel and ignite student passion for history; the challenge, the wonder and the excitement
  • To encourage open, enquiring minds to challenge their and others' opinions bravely
  • To use the study of history as a powerful vehicle for transferable skill development
  • To use historical enquiries to develop independent learning
  • To help students make good progress and gain external accreditation in History


Geography at Leeds West Academy

The geography department is an intellectually vibrant department at the forefront of innovative teaching and learning, both within the classroom and out in the field. We inspire students to think at a variety of scales from local to global, ultimately helping to shape the future world we live in. We do this by:

  • Appreciating geography in its widest context, interconnecting place, space, time and scale
  • Encouraging purposeful and independent enquiry
  • Stimulating a passion for highly motivated learning
