Welcome to the St Leonards Academy

Kay Tinsley

Principal

I am enormously proud to be the principal of The St Leonards Academy. We are a modern and innovative school with dedicated and determined staff, united by our values. We have approximately 1350 students and have the highest expectations of each and every child.

With an uncompromising commitment to maximising the potential and talent of the students of St Leonards, we work closely with parents, staff and students to ensure their successful futures and the best possible academic outcomes from outstanding courses and, crucially, the experiences and guidance that will help them become respectful, determined, and innovative young people. They have quality pastoral care through our 'schools' system that ensures that every child is known and that in everything we do, excellence is standard.

Students at our Academy experience an innovative and dynamic approach to learning in all their lessons. Last year we achieved our best ever GCSE results and we are expecting even better results from our outstanding Year 11 students this year. We continue to be the school of choice in the town, heavily oversubscribed, with 300 children starting with us in the autumn.

In May 2012, we were judged good by Ofsted following a two-day inspection. We are the only school in the town judged good in all four categories and are on the journey to becoming outstanding.

I hope you find all the information you require on this website but please do contact us if you would like to know more or to arrange to visit us. If you would like to be kept up to date with developments at The St Leonards Academy then I recommend following us on twitter at @sl_academy.
