Leeds East Academy


Executive Principal's Student of the Month

Congratulations to Sophie in Year 10 at Leeds East Academy, who is Andrew Whitaker’s, Executive Principal of The White Rose Academies Trust, Student of the Month for October 2018.

Sophie has been honoured with this award to show how proud the Trust are in her amazing talent.  An incredible gymnast who works hard on her skills, Sophie played a key role in the new Leeds East Academy Open Evening video.

Sophie said: “At first I did not know why I had to go see Mr Whitaker, but I was very excited when I found out I was receiving this award.  I really enjoy doing Gymnastics with my group of friends. At my club, I have the opportunity to volunteer and coach children from the ages of 5 to11 every Tuesday and Saturday.

Next year I will be going to Austria to compete in the World Gymnaestrada which is the largest general gymnastics exhibition”.

After hearing about Sophie receiving this award, Mr Green, Sophie’s Year Manager, commented “I am extremely proud of Sophie for her achievement and continued effort throughout school. 

"I am confident Sophie will go on to achieve great things. It’s a privilege to be her Year Manager.”

On presenting the award to Sophie, Mr Whitaker, Executive Principal said “Sophie has been chosen for this prestigious award owing to her inspirational character and for the fact that she optimises the values of the Trust.”

The White Rose Academies Trust would like to wish Sophie the best of luck when she attends the Gymnaestrada in Austria next year and we look forward to celebrating her further successes.
