Laurence Calvert Academy is a proposed new high school in the inner south area of Leeds, planned to open in September 2018, subject to approval by the Department for Education.
We welcome you to show your support and complete an expression of interest form below and support this new free school academy for the area.
The Cockburn Multi-academy Trust has taken the decision to apply to open a new high school to improve standards of education for 11-16 students in the area and to address the shortage of places.
It is hoped that the new high school will be housed in buildings that offer students a state of the art experience and dynamic learning environment.
It is planned that the new academy will have capacity for 900 students. This will address the demand for a greater number of secondary school places in south Leeds due to increased demand shown by demographics for the area over the forthcoming years.
