Abbey Grange Academy

Butcher Hill Leeds West Yorkshire LS16 5EA

“We are the only Church of England Academy in Leeds and, therefore, our students come from all over the city to receive an education in which we all work together to stretch them academically, support them pastorally and help them develop socially and spiritually. Within our caring and Christian ethos we continually strive for excellence in all areas of school life, both inside and outside the classroom. Our students flourish in an environment which is welcoming, caring, calm, disciplined and purposeful. Each individual student matters to us and is encouraged to be the very best they can be. The greatest strength of the academy is our focus on quality teaching and our commitment to the learner, which enables excellent achievement at all levels. This is supported by an outstanding pastoral system that is rooted in mutually respectful relationships.”
