RT @mslaverytsla: Absolutely brilliant to see so many y8 students excited about taking a GCSE in languages at options evening tonight 😁🇫🇷🇪🇸…
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.
Students at our Academy experience an innovative and dynamic approach to learning in all their lessons. This year we achieved our best ever GCSE results and we continue to be the school of choice in the town, heavily oversubscribed, with 300 children in our Year 7.
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.
