Leeds East Academy


Core Skills

 Subject Areas are split into three distinct areas to ensure quality of delivery and to help raise standards across the board. These are Core Skills (English, Maths and Science), Society and Cultures (all Humanities subjects, Languages, Health and Social Care, Psychology and Sociology) and Active and Vocational (PE, Performance Arts, Art and Technology). Below are the qualifications on offer in those areas.



English is a subject that all students need. In addition to the acquisition of vital literacy skills needed for the future, it is also a field that should be enjoyed.

The English curriculum focuses on teaching vital. skills in reading, writing and speaking/listening.  All students will find one area of English that they enjoy and excel at. It is our goal to ensure that this enthusiasm and confidence in that area is transferred into all aspects of the subject. 

It is key that all students develop skills across the three key areas of reading, writing and speaking/listening.  The KS3 scheme of work builds on these skills and includes regular assessment across all three areas.  In addition to a more engaging approach, we focus on independence and developing students to assess their own work, whilst building a sound knowledge to guide them to further progress.
