I firmly believe that all the young people of Leeds are entitled to a first-class education offering exceptional, inspirational teaching. This year, The White Rose Academies Trust has secured that new standard of learning for students in our progressive schools. We know the future of Leeds is vibrant and exciting – but for our region to reach its full potential in future, it demands a serious investment in the young people who will, ultimately, drive forward and shape our city of tomorrow. Investing in every child is what we will continue to do as we improve our schools; empowering and supporting teachers, elevating our standards and inspiring our students to achieve and succeed as ambitious, collaborative and confident citizens. Today, we celebrate and commend our students’ achievements and look to the future with great excitement.”
