Choosing the right secondary school for your child is a defining moment as a parent or carer.

The education landscape in east Leeds is changing. Great things are about to happen as John Smeaton Academy joined the highest performing educational trust in the country, The GORSE Academies Trust on 1 September 2021.

Inspirational education and exciting enrichment opportunities within an inclusive environment are the cornerstones of GORSE schools. And we make no apologies for prioritising all students securing outstanding examination results.

We’ll be sharing

  • Success stories from other Gorse Academies Trust schools, information about new initiatives
  • Honest views from parents, carers and pupils at other schools within the Trust
  • Information about what you can expect and what opportunities your child will have at John Smeaton Academy now and in the future


Keep visiting our campaign page regularly or follow John Smeaton Academy on Facebook and Instagram to hear all about it.

You can trust in GORSE. Choose John Smeaton Academy and secure the gift of choice.
