Leeds East Academy


Executive Principal's Student of the Month

Congratulations to Caleb in Year 7, who is Andrew Whitaker’s, Executive Principal of The White Rose Academies Trust, Student of the Month for September 2019.

When Caleb was presented with this award, he said “I am shocked. In primary school, I didn’t behave and I got bullied, but I have come here and I like it. Leeds East Academy has changed my life.

I had a label in primary school of the naughty one but now I can’t believe how amazing LEA is.”

After hearing about Caleb receiving this award, Mr Carrington, KS3 Behaviour and Attendance Leader at LEA, commented “Caleb was shaking and couldn't speak when we left Mr Whitaker’s office to go back to lesson because he was so overwhelmed.

Caleb is an absolute credit to the academy and the perfect role model for anyone who needs a second chance.

I am so proud of how far Caleb has come and I look forward to seeing how far he can go at LEA.”

On meeting with Caleb and presenting him with this award, Mr Whitaker, Executive Principal said “It has been one of my highlights of the new academic year to witness the incredible progress that Caleb is making both as a student and an individual.

Without question, Caleb is a Trust Student Leader of the future. Well done Caleb!”
