Welcome to John Smeaton Academy

Welcome to the John Smeaton Academy website. I trust you will find it both interesting and informative and that, whether you are a parent, student, teacher or indeed a resident in the community we serve, you will gain an insight in to our vibrant and friendly school. With almost 1,000 students between 11 and 18 we serve the communities on the eastern edge of Leeds and the villages on the city outskirts.

John Smeaton Academy is an improving school and these improvements are already visible to all stakeholders and visitors. This is a productive and engaging place of learning in a well-cared for, high tech building. Classrooms and corridors are calm and student behaviour is excellent, allowing teachers to teach, children to learn and make progress every day.

Surveys of student views consistently tell us, in overwhelming numbers, that they feel safe and happy in school. For us as staff and for parents and carers, that establishes a great platform from which children can reach and in many cases, exceed their potential.

If you would like a tour of the school whilst it is ‘in session’ I would be more than happy to take you round during the school day to visit lessons and speak with staff and students. Simply call the school to make an appointment.

We look forward to working with you as we continue to strive for academic excellence, bringing out the ‘Best in Everyone’

Thank you for your interest in our school and for taking the time to visit the John Smeaton Academy website.
