GCSE Results Day 2019

Leeds West Academy has secured the best GCSE results in its history!

Students and staff at Leeds West Academy are celebrating record-breaking results, after the release of the 2019 GCSE results. The academy has secured substantial improvements in the number of students achieving Grades 9-5 in both English and Maths, and strong improvement in almost every subject. Progress across all subjects has also improved significantly.

Christian Wilcocks, Principal of Leeds West Academy, said “I am thrilled to share these results with our students, our staff and our community. Since joining Leeds West in 2017, we have made many significant and necessary improvements to the way we work and everything we have done has been focused on securing the best possible results for our students. I feel so proud of our students and staff; these results are the product of their hard work and determination.”

The record-breaking GCSE results follow the recent Ofsted inspection, where the academy was judged as ‘Good’ in all areas. Kate Pearlman-Shaw, Chair of Governors, joined staff in welcoming students to receive their results this morning. Kate commented, “This is a fantastic achievement for Leeds West Academy. It was wonderful to see so many happy faces as students received their results. I would like to offer my congratulations to all students and staff. This is a validation of the changes made at the academy over the last two years and a testament to the hard-work and dedication of the staff.”
