Leeds East Academy


LEA Student of the Week

Lucy is an impressive student.

Congratulations to Lucy in Year 11, who is Leeds East Academy’s Student of the Week.

Lucy had been booked onto a holiday by her sister over the final part of her summer exams. The sister wasn’t aware of the dates when she booked the holiday. Lucy has volunteered to forego the holiday this year as she couldn’t get a later flight out to join her family. This means she now won’t miss any exams in the summer.

Mr Colman said "I was really impressed with Lucy's attitude to this as it is a big sacrifice to make, especially knowing her entire family will be on holiday while she remains behind to complete her formal exams.

"It is pleasing to see the importance that she has placed on her academic qualifications.

"Lucy also damaged her front teeth on Thursday evening but still came into school on Friday in a lot of pain as she didn’t want to miss learning time. Impressive." 

Who will be the next student of the week? It could be you!
