CEO’s Welcome


Welcome to Leodis Academies Trust.

Leodis Academies Trust was established in April 2016 to formalise the collaborative working of four high performing schools within close proximity of one another. In September 2018, Blackgates Primary Academy joined the Trust, cementing our place at the heart of the Tingley and Ardsley Community. Leodis offers young people the opportunity to experience consistency and security in their education, from 2 years old to 18 years old; from the start of nursery, to the end of Sixth Form and into adulthood.

Leodis Academies Trust and our individual Academies are committed to ‘Forging Young Futures’. To do this, each Academy has its own ethos and identity, and has the freedom to develop individually as well as working collaboratively to secure high quality outcomes for all its young people. By providing an extensive curriculum, both within and beyond the classroom, we cater for the wide range of talent and ability that our students have to offer. We work tirelessly to improve the life chances of all our young people and support them to make a positive contribution to their community.

Whilst Leodis consists of schools closely geographically located, the Trust works collaboratively with a wide range of partner organisations both locally in Morley and South Leeds, as well as further afield with our Initial Teacher Training partnerships, Universities and employers.

CEO Principal of Leodis Academies Trust
