It is with huge pride that I welcome you to The St Leonards Academy. We are an innovative school with dedicated and determined staff, united by our values. We have approximately 1450 students and have the highest expectations that each and every child will achieve personal and academic success. We also support every student to contribute actively and positively to the Academy and the community that we serve.
Students at our Academy experience a creative and dynamic approach to learning in all their lessons. In 2017 we secured our best ever GCSE results and were awarded recognition of 'exceptional results' by the SSAT. In February 2017, we were judged 'Good' by Ofsted and the inspection team recognised that we are on the journey to becoming outstanding.

The Academy entered two teams in the District Year 7 girls' netball tournament. Our
A team were triumphant staying unbeaten all afternoon and not conceding one
goal. They had wins over our B team, Claverham Community College, Rye College and The Hastings Academy and will now go to the Sussex School Games finals on Wednesday 27th June to represent the area.
Students were invited to wear red to raise money for the British Heart Foundation on Thursday 29th March. Activities took place all day including cake sales, throwing the sponge at the teacher and penalty shoot outs, to name but a few. Donations are still coming in - we will announce the total at the beginning of Term 5.
The St Leonards Academy PE department presented the annual Gym and Dance Showcase on Wednesday 28th March. The main hall was full of family and friends to
watch over 80 students perform – many for the first time. Mrs Bennett said I never tire of these
events, they make me so proud every time the students step out on stage. These
opportunities are so important for young people as they help to build
resilience, develop confidence and create bonds and friendships for life". Thank you to...
