Woodkirk enjoys a fantastic reputation, both in Leeds and the surrounding district. We are about people - students, staff, both teaching and non-teaching, parents and governors - and in this regard we are second to none. No other school can match the commitment, ethos and atmosphere of Woodkirk. This is a brilliant place to grow up and mature, to learn, to play and to work.
In 2016, our GCSE results were outstanding, with 83% of Year 11 students achieving five or more A*-C grades including English and Maths. The progress that the students made from their starting point being among the very best in the city.
We also enjoyed success in our A Level examinations, with a 99% pass rate.
Mr S Alleston
Chair of Governors
THE PURPOSE OF THE GOVERNING BOARD
The Woodkirk Academy's Governing Board work closely with the Headteacher, school staff and other external agencies to make sure all Woodkirk students get the best possible education. The bringing together of governors with different backgrounds, experience and interests provides a wide range of skills that benefit the Academy.
While no individual governor has the authority to act alone there are opportunities to contribute in areas of particular interest, for example linking to a specific area of the curriculum. Being a governor is challenging, but rewarding. Governors must be committed and willing to give up their time to attend meetings and visit departments.
