Leeds East Transition - Open Evening 21st September from 6pm

Embarking on your First Steps on a Journey to Success

We are very proud of our transition process as Leeds East Academy. Students arrive with us with a good understanding of the school, our expectations and our systems for behaviour and attendance.

Chris Stokes

Principal - Leeds East Academy


Welcome to Transition and welcome to Leeds East Academy. The move from Year 6 to Year 7 represents an exciting time in every child’s school career and is full of opportunities.

The transition process is a key priority for us at Leeds East Academy. We know that a good start sets the tone for a successful Secondary School career, which is why we invest so much time, resource and planning into the process. By ensuring that Year 6 pupils are well prepared for that important step up, we are guaranteeing their progress and well-being over the next 5 years.

Student Feedback

"Positive Discipline is really good because you know exactly what will happen if you or someone else disrupts the lesson... but if you do things right you will be rewarded." 

"My attendance target is 96% and above and I think it's important because being in school helps my education and learning."

"I think the staff are kind and helpful and if you ever had a problem they will always sort it out."
