The Morley Academy, previously Morley High School, was one of the first converter academies in the country. It is a much larger than average secondary academy and is situated in the centre of the town of Morley. The great majority of its students are of white British heritage and indicators around levels of deprivation show the academy’s profile to be broadly in line with the national average.

Outcomes in examinations are exceptionally strong and in 2019 The Morley Academy was, once again, one of the highest performing secondary schools in the country regarding the progress of all students. The academy has a powerful reputation for its work in improving the performance of disadvantaged children which is recognised nationally.

In its inspections of 2009 and 2013 the academy was judged to be Outstanding.

In its inspections of 2009 and 2013 the academy was judged to be Outstanding and in 2016 The Morley Academy was accredited as a World Class School.

Following a reorganisation in the Trust, in the summer of 2016 Morley bid a fond farewell to its last Post-16 students. This involved the closure of an Outstanding 315 student sixth form provision and it is an immense credit to the academy’s then Principal Leanne Griffiths, who was appointed in November 2014, and all of the professionals of the academy, that this was completed without any compromise to standards and achievement. As a result of this reorganisation The Morley Academy is now able to welcome more students into each of its year groups which is particularly important given the sustained popularity of the academy in its local community.

In 2018 Leanne Griffiths took on the role of Executive Principal for 11-16 Education and now oversees all of our secondary academies. Adam Ryder is now Principal at The Morley Academy bringing with him extensive experience of exceptional school improvement. Under Adam’s leadership the academy has continued to excel and in the 2019 examinations series The Morley Academy was recognised as the highest performing secondary school in the Leeds Local Authority with a Progress 8 score of 0.71 and a disadvantaged Progress 8 score of 0.64. Most importantly, however, students at The Morley Academy receive an Outstanding, all-round, educational experience of which we are very proud.
