Welcome to Leeds City Academy!

September Return


I would like to politely remind parents that due to the growing popularity of LCA & the increasing number of students wishing to attend the school, it is vital your child attends the school from Thursday 8th September in order to avoid the possibility of them losing their place at LCA. If you are aware of any planned absence it is important that you inform the school as soon as possible.

Year 7 Students - We cannot wait to meet you in September! A reminder that your first day is Wednesday 7th September. Please ensure you arrive between 8:00am and 8:25am in full school uniform. See you then!
