Leeds West Academy



Update: Thank you for your interest in the LWA Travel Pass. Please note the closing date for applications is Friday 21st September at 9am. If you have any questions please email travelpass@leedswestacademy.org

You may recall that during the consultation process on the closure of our 6th form, we recognised that the additional cost of travel to another college/6th form provision is often a barrier to our students. In response to this, we promised that the Academy would support travel expenses through the provision of a free travel pass for those students that applied to our 6th form. We will ensure that the travel pass covers a reasonable journey between your home and your chosen destination, be it Leeds City College, or another 6th form provision across the city. We will support this travel expense for the first year of your studies.  

To be eligible for this travel pass you must have:

  • Applied to LWA 6th Form during the Spring/Summer term 2018
  • Achieved the required grades for your chosen course at LWA 6th Form
  • Achieved the required attendance during year 11 for your chosen course at LWA 6th Form
  • Been offered and accepted a place at another college/6th Form provision for September 2018


If you feel you fit the above criteria, please email travelpass@leedswestacademy.org.uk


In your email, please supply the following information:

  • Name of student
  • Course applied to at LWA 6th Form
  • Summer 2018 GCSE grades
  • Course and place of accepted destination i..e Leeds City College, Horsforth 6th Form


If you do not provide the above information it may slow down our ability to process your application.


Bus to Horsforth 6th From

As part of our pledge to support students in their travel arrangements to their chosen 6th form or college, Leeds West Academy have partnered with Horsforth School to schedule a daily bus.

The bus will transport students from an agreed location (tbc) to Horsforth and then back again. This service will be available for all those students that originally applied to LWA 6th Form but are now going to Horsforth.

More information will be circulated by Horsforth school to those student early next week.
