Joseph Leckie Academy: Open Evening Wednesday 27th September 2017

Choosing a secondary school for your child can be a challenging and sometimes worrying decision and that is why I hope you will come along and see us, talk to some of our wonderful teachers and hear about the fantastic and exciting learning opportunities that Joseph Leckie Academy offers your child.

Joseph Leckie Academy is a high quality local school for local children, praised by Ofsted in their last two inspections for being good in all aspects of the inspection process.  It offers a gateway to success, an innovative curriculum, a caring and supportive team of staff and a guaranteed place in education until the age of eighteen.  Our large Sixth Form means that the Post 16 curriculum offers a wide range of ‘A’ levels as well as Level 3 courses.  At ‘A’ level results are very good with a 95% pass rate, with 39% achieving top grades at ‘A’ level and 69% achieving top grades in vocational BTEC courses.  Thirty-two courses achieved 100% pass rates which is a fantastic achievement.

High numbers of our students go on to university including top Russell Group universities whilst others secure high quality training and employment.

The achievement and progress our students make are both good.  The care we take of our students is good, according to Ofsted, and behaviour, discipline and standards of uniform are all very good indeed.

This summer’s changes in grade boundaries means that comparisons for GCSE results with previous years are difficult to make, but I will give more information about this at our Open Evening.

At Joseph Leckie Academy our students have a fantastic range of exciting opportunities, not just during the normal academy day, but after school as well as during the evenings, weekends and holiday periods when a wide range of programmed and supervised activities are arranged.

In July 2016 our new teaching lock opened which consists of 21 classrooms which will further help to transform teaching and learning with ICT rich areas and state of the art facilities.

These images below give a good idea of what the new facilities look like and you will be able to tour these facilities during the Open Evening.

I would welcome the opportunity to show you what our Academy is really like, and for you to see it either at our Open Evening on September 27th from 7.00 – 9.00 pm or on our Open Days on Thursday and Friday, 28th and 29th September, when tours of the Academy will be available with members of staff.  Tours will be available throughout the day but do ring us to arrange a mutually convenient time for your tour.  We hope that both of these opportunities will help you appreciate just what life is like for a Joseph Leckie Academy student.

Should you not be able to make any of these dates, then please ring us and we will make every effort to arrange a tour on a date and time that is convenient for you.

Please may I ask you to encourage any family, friends and neighbours whose children are in Year 6 to attend our Open Evening?  Last year we had many more applications than available spaces and the pressure on places is likely to increase for next year.

Do come and see us as you consider the right school for your child’s future secondary education and what Joseph Leckie Academy can offer.

Yours faithfully
