Leeds West Academy


Student of the Week

From Lion King to School of Rock

Congratulations to Foundation School student Dylan, who is Leeds West Academy's current Student of the Week.

Dylan is a well-known face across the school as one of the Academy's leading performers in Drama, Dance and Musical Theatre. Following an impressive performance in the Academy's award-winning version of The Lion King Jr, Dylan has now transferred his unique talents to London's West End for a six month engagement in School of Rock - The Musical.

Dylan won the role following four auditions and he is currently enjoying rehearsals whilst living in the capital. His first performance is expected to be at the end of February at The New London Theatre.

Acting Principal Mr Wheeler said: "Well done Dylan! Whilst we'll miss your superb talents in our whole-school production of The Wiz next term, we know our loss is certainly the West End's gain. Keep up the excellent work."
