Welcome to the St Leonards Academy

Jonathan Francies

Principal

I am delighted to welcome you to The St Leonards Academy website.

I am proud to lead both a talented and well qualified staff who hold an unshakeable belief in all of our students' abilities to achieve. As predicted, we have just achieved our best ever GCSE results and I am pleased to say we are currently oversubscribed with 300 new year 7s starting this academic year.

In joining The St Leonards Academy, your child will experience an innovative and dynamic approach to learning in all their lessons. They will also have quality pastoral care through our 'schools' system that ensures that every child is known. We are committed to ensuring that every child will leave with the qualifications and employability skills they need for life beyond The St Leonards Academy.

Your child, at The St Leonards Academy, will have the opportunity to access state of the art facilities in our newly refurbished building. Furthermore, we encourage students to take part in the many and varied extra-curricular opportunities on offer.

Building on our good OFSTED inspection of 2013, I look forward to working with parents, staff and students in the coming year, to create an exceptional academy that will ensure a successful future for the young people of St Leonards.

I hope you find the all the information you require on this website. Please do not hesitate to contact us to ask for any further information or to arrange a visit.
