Welcome from the Head of School

I am delighted to be the new Head of School at Cockburn Laurence Calvert Academy.

Our first cohort of Year 7 students will be the founding members of the academy, creating a real family feel. We will make sure those students are nurtured both academically and pastorally. This will be an exciting and unique opportunity for any child starting their secondary education.

Laurence Calvert Academy will be the trust’s third secondary school in South Leeds and we will bring our tried and tested track record of systems and experienced staff, focusing on teaching and learning as the single most important thing that we do. We design challenging and innovative learning experiences for students so they are highly engaged.
Our enriching schemes of learning will inspire students with a passion for lifelong learning.
