The school was previously an all-girls school, being the last single-sex school in Leeds. Parklands Girls High School was particularly small for an urban secondary school with only around 350 pupils; it was this which suggested to Leeds City Council that segregated education was no longer popular and prompted them to make it a mixed school and it was renamed Parklands High School.
The school is now an academy and has a partnership with Leeds West Academy and Leeds City Academy. Leeds West and Leeds East Academies were previously sponsored by E-ACT, however in 2014 the schools joined the White Rose Academies Trust with Leeds City College as their sponsor.[not in citation given] The school moved to new buildings in April 2013.
As part of the White Rose Academies Trust, Leeds East Academy were judged as "Requires Improvement" by Ofsted following inspections in 2015 and 2017. However, in May 2019, the academy was inspected once again by Ofsted and it was judged as "Good' in all areas.
