Our Academy opened in September 2006 and serves the area of East Leeds. We are part of the government’s original Academies programme, working within a network of high-performing Specialist Schools and Academies nationally. Our building is a state of the art 21st Century Academy with students and staff working in an ICT rich environment.
OFSTED visits in May 2012 (section 5 and section 48) reported the Academy to be 'Good' and 'Outstanding' respectively. We attract a lot of attention nationally and internationally and host visitors on a very regular basis, as a key part of our role is to model innovative practice. Learning in the Academy is highly personalised with a 2 year Key Stage Three and a 3 year Key Stage Four.
DYCA is not an ordinary school. It is a unique environment with exceptional staff and students undertaking transformational work.
Current Academy Status: The Academy is open as usual.
