JSA secures the School of Sanctuary Award!

Earlier this week, a group of John Smeaton students accompanied Mrs Hanif to the Leeds Civic Hall to deliver presentations and find out if we had secured the School of Sanctuary Award.Our students bravely took to the stage and spoke passionately about what John Smeaton Academy means to them and why they feel the school is deserving of the School of Sanctuary Award.Students also heard from four other Leeds-based schools before the Lord Mayor of Leeds announced that John Smeaton had secured the School of Sanctuary Award and presented our students with the award and special Lord Mayor of Leeds badges.
We are absolutely delighted and very proud of all staff and students involved.
