The Leeds Curriculum
The Leeds Curriculum provides students with an outstanding education through our pioneering approach to teaching. Students at Leeds are encouraged to broaden their intellectual horizons and make the most of a wealth of co-curricular activities. This equips them to succeed in a competitive global employment market and to make a difference to the world around them.
