Welcome to Leodis Academies Trust

Leodis Academies Trust was established in April 2016 to formalise the collaborative working of four high performing schools within close proximity of one another. In September 2018, Blackgates Primary Academy joined the Trust, cementing our place at the heart of the Tingley and Ardsley Community. Leodis offers young people the opportunity to experience consistency and security in their education, from 2 years old to 18 years old; from the start of nursery, to the end of Sixth Form and into adulthood.

Leodis Academies Trust and our individual Academies are committed to ‘Forging Young Futures’. To do this, each Academy has its own ethos and identity, and has the freedom to develop individually as well as working collaboratively to secure high quality outcomes for all its young people. By providing an extensive curriculum, both within and beyond the classroom, we cater for the wide range of talent and ability that our students have to offer. We work tirelessly to improve the life chances of all our young people and support them to make a positive contribution to their community.

Whilst Leodis consists of schools closely geographically located, the Trust works collaboratively with a wide range of partner organisations both locally in Morley and South Leeds, as well as further afield with our Initial Teacher Training partnerships, Universities and employers.

Our Vision

At Leodis Academies Trust we are committed to developing every young person‘s full learning potential through a wide variety of educational experiences in an environment that fosters positive relationships based on mutual respect.

Every individual part of the whole:

Each of our schools have their own identity and ethos that reflects their specific community and the needs of the young people within them. However they are all underpinned by a strong sense of purpose, order and control which in turn produces confident and enthusiastic young people who value education and the opportunities it affords them.

Building on excellence together:

Not content with focusing on academic excellence we all work hard to shape our young people into fully rounded individuals, ready to face the demands of a rapidly changing society. We access a comprehensive range of support and development services, in-house and externally, to ensure barriers to learning are tackled and their impact on attainment is reduced to allow every young person to make significant progress.

Our positive outlook and excellent reputation enables us to attract and sustain high quality staff teams lead by exceptional leadership teams. Our tireless focus on quality first teaching secures a safe, happy and high achieving learning environment for all our young people. We value every success and celebrate the achievements of all our young people through events, newsletters and our websites.

Looking outwards to strengthen within:

With collaboration at the heart of our work as a Trust we are able to share good practice, resources, and a philosophy that secures high quality teaching and learning across our schools. We focus on the breadth of curriculum; and value and provide enrichment opportunities for our young people to develop their talents and to find new skills and interests.

Whilst we focus on working together across the schools we recognise that we cannot grow, develop and fulfil our vision for every young person without strong partnerships. Central to this is the relationship between home and school; strong communication and open, honest dialogue ensuring we know our young people well and can work together to meet their needs.
