  • TSLA Student is a winner!

    29th July 2016 - The South Leeds Academy

    Year 8  TSLA student Luqman has won a nationwide competition with Virgin Trains after designing a futuristic train.

    The 13-year-old student entered the competition in June, along with the rest of Year 7 and 8, which involved designing a train for the future with his design chosen as one of three winners. The design, which included a crazy golf pitch, gym and Jacuzzi all on board, helped bag him four first class return train tickets, courtesy of Virgin Trains.
