Welcome from the Executive Headteacher

We are delighted that our proposed 11-16 secondary school, Cockburn Laurence Calvert Academy, has progressed to the pre-opening phase. As part of this, we are required to undertake a public consultation.

Cockburn Laurence Calvert Academy, a state-funded school, will be sited off the Ring Road, Middleton, Leeds, LS10. The planned opening date in for Phase 1 at the same site is September 2021 with a view to the permanent building being ready for occupation in September 2022. The Academy has an admission number of 210 per year group and the full capacity of the school will be 1050 students.

The school will form part of the growing Cockburn Multi-academy Trust made up of both primary and secondary academies, based in Leeds.

The Cockburn Multi-academy Trust exists to radically improve student’s life chances by seeking to wider their aspirations. We work to raise attainment and provide exceptional teaching and learning for all our students through high expectations of academic success and behaviour.

The school will replicate the high-quality provision offered by other secondary schools within the Trust; Cockburn School and Cockburn John Charles Academy, both of which offer a broad and balanced curriculum within a nurturing and inclusive environment.

We look forward to listening to your views, in order to provide parents/carers and   the community we serve with the best school possible.
