Leeds East Academy


Year 11 Support 


As our Year 11 students progress through their final year at Leeds East Academy and begin to prepare for GCSE examinations, we will ensure that they are supported both academically and pastorally to finish their journey with us successfully and are prepared their next steps in further education and careers. The below provides an overview of what will be provided and implemented over the remainder of this academic year.

Support and Intervention

Given the amount of learning time that has been disrupted by COVID-19, we are looking to seize every opportunity to support our students, ensuring that their remaining year with us is maximised. To accomplish this, subject specialists will be providing students with a host of bespoke and targeted intervention opportunities based on individual needs to support their progress to achieve strong academic outcomes.

It is important that students utilise these opportunities. 

Before and After School Intervention

 The academy provides a comprehensive before and after school intervention offer, targeting key knowledge and skills. Morning sessions start at 8.00am. Afternoon sessions commence at the end of the academy day.

Please encourage your child to utilise these additional opportunities.

GCSE Results Day 2024

Details for Results Day – Thursday 22nd August 2024

  • 9:30 – 10:00 Students arrival via Main Reception
  • 10:00 – 11:00 Leavers assembly and celebration brunch
  • 11:00 – 12:00 Collection of results from the Sports Hall

We know that GCSE Results day is a day that we all look forward to with a mix of excitement and often, a great deal of apprehension. These results are the culmination of years of hard work.  We are incredibly proud of the resilience, integrity, and ambition that this Year 11 cohort have showcased.   Results Day is a key milestone moment for your child, and we look forward to welcoming them back on 24th August to share in and celebrate their achievements.

Whilst students are collecting results specialist colleagues will be available to provide further guidance relating to academic outcomes and further education/careers.  Members of staff from Leeds City College will also be based within the academy to provide appropriate support.

In the event that there are changes in circumstances prior to Thursday 24th August, updated plans will be communicated with you. 

Frequently Asked Questions:

What does my child receive on Results Day?

On results day your child will be issued with an envelope which will include the following:

A single document that will detail all results.

Guidance on the dispatch of formal GCSE certificated from exam boards – these arrive in school about three months after results day.

What if my child is unable to collect their results in person on Results Day?

Please note that GCSE Results belong to the student only and cannot be collected by another person.  If the student is unable to collect their results, they can nominate a close relative of their family (not friend, neighbour or acquaintance) to collect their results in their place. The student must provide written confirmation (email or letter) to the school that their nominated person can collect for them. That person must also provide ID at the collection point, along with the letter.

What if my child and the family is unable to collect their results on Results Day?

If a student and their family are unable to collect their results on the day, they can request their results to be emailed to them by the school. This request must be made by Wednesday 23rd August.

The student themselves must email the school at info@leedseastacademy.org and address the email to Miss Dransfield by Wednesday 21st August. Students must send the email using their school email address. Again, as the results belong to the student, results can only be emailed to the student themselves.

If you require any further information regarding the logistics of the day, please do not hesitate to get in touch.  We hope to see your child at Results Day to recognise their achievements over the last 5 years, and the resilience they have shown throughout a national pandemic and an extremely challenging final three years of their education.



Remote Intervention

When students were required to work from home, we all adapted to accessing online resources and were able to use these to continue studying. We want to continue to utilise this as a provision to support the progress of our students. Using Class Charts, subject teachers will set bespoke interventions for targeted students based on individual need and target grade.

Interventions will be set weekly on Mondays. These interventions will be in addition to home learning set and target students will be rotated throughout the year.

Revision and Preparation Platforms

The platforms below can be utilised to consolidate learning and revise in preparation for future assessment.

Please also refer to the Revision Guidance page for further resources and strategies to support independent study.
