Leeds City Academy


Northern Gas Networks

Leeds City Academy has competed in the Northern Gas Networks ‘Outstanding Presenter Competition’ over the last two years. This is a competition that was piloted in 2015 with just two schools competing, however, in 2016 the number of schools competing grew quite considerably to six.

The enthusiasm, hard work and dedication of the Year 9 Leeds City Academy students is commendable and all five students deserved a place in the finals but sadly the competition rules stipulate only two finalists from each school. We are extremely proud of each student's commitment to the competition and the quality of their presentations.

The finals were held in conjunction with the Northern Gas Networks employee finalists so there were lessons to be learned by all competitors. This was an exciting opportunity for the students to showcase their skills in front of a large audience and the CEO of Northern Gas Networks, which takes an enormous amount of courage.

Ms Ward - Employability Coordinator, said: "Well done to you all and hopefully you will be able to mentor Year 9 students through the process next academic year. "
