The trust which runs Leeds West Academy has today become a member of an alliance of education establishents with a shared commitment to inclusion, collaboration and high-level ambition. 

The White Rose Academies Trust (WRAT), which runs the Intake Lane school, joined the Leeds Learning Alliance (LLA), a foundation Trust which was formed by like-minded Leeds educational organisations.

WRAT bosses hope membership will help their Trust grow and become an even more inclusive and collaborative organisation.

The main principles of the LLA are:

  • Unconditional mutual respect.
  • Inclusive and comprehensive admission and retention practices.
  • A supportive and challenging culture:
  • Learning and community at the heart of all that we do.
  • A broad, balanced and relevant curriculum offer for every child.
  • Shared community use of facilities and a commitment to and promotion of family learning and healthy lifestyles.

Andrew Whitaker, CEO of the White Rose Academies Trust, said:

“The Trust is delighted to work with the organisations and colleagues across the LLA family.  We feel that our membership of this organisation is a key part of our 2025 strategy; a strategy that will see the Trust grow and become an even more inclusive and collaborative organisation.”

Paul Brennan, Chair of the LLA, added:

“I am delighted and excited by the enormous potential that is created by White Rose Academies Trust joining the Leeds Learning Alliance. This builds and strengthens all our work in bringing the best that Leeds has to offer its children and young people and most especially those that are overcoming disadvantage in their young lives. 

This places the Leeds Learning Alliance in an even stronger position to further drive achievement through collaboration and inclusion.”
