Message from the Head of School

I would like to personally thank you for taking the time to visit our newly designed website which I hope gives you an insight into, and useful information regarding Cockburn John Charles Academy

My own teaching career began at Cockburn School in September 1999 as a newly qualified science teacher and I have served as a Senior Leader for the last 10 years. I was also born and raised in Beeston and I am determined that all children in the South Leeds Area have access to an outstanding education.  It is now truly an honour to be able to lead Cockburn John Charles Academy as Head on the next part of its journey of “Transformation to Excellence”.

Our Values and Expectations define us and we demand excellence from staff and students in everything we do. These values and expectations permeate our practice both in and out of the classroom. It is our goal to send every student out into the world ready to play their part and be successful on an increasingly competitive and challenging global stage.

I am proud that our academy is truly comprehensive and draws on range of multi-cultural backgrounds, which together coalesce to create the very special Cockburn John Charles Academy atmosphere and ethos that visitors to the academy regularly remark on.

Cockburn John Charles Academy students have access to excellent facilities, resources and hard- working, highly competent staff who always go the extra mile to ensure they are successful and have a world class educational experience.

Being part of the Cockburn Multi-academy Trust means we can work with other schools in the community sharing best practice that impacts positively on the lives of children and families in the local area.

I am excited for the future of Cockburn John Charles Academy look forward to working with students and their parents to build upon the successful foundations and opportunities that are in place.

Mrs S Roberts
Head of School
