Morley Newlands Academy, (formally Morley Newlands Primary School) joined The GORSE Academies Trust on 1 March 2015 and has quickly formed a close partnership with primary and secondary academy colleagues within the Trust.
We are immensely proud that, in its inspection of January 2018 , Morley Newlands Academy was judged to be Outstanding in all areas.

Morley Newlands is situated in South Leeds. Its children bring a range of experiences; they are eager to learn and a delight to be with. Morley Newlands Academy is a growing three form entry school. Within the next 4 years, it will be one of the largest primary schools within the Yorkshire and Humber region.

In September 2014 the school moved from an old, run down building to new state of the art accommodation, with excellent facilities to support our children, their families and the local community.
