Welcome to Leighswood School’s website. It is continually being updated and we hope that you find it both useful and interesting.

Normally we are over subscribed in Reception so it is unusual that we have a few places available in Reception for September 2018.  Our Early Years has a strong reputation and we would love to offer the remaining places to local children.  If you know of any families who would like a place, please ask them to contact the school office as soon as possible. 

Leighswood is a very popular school on a spacious and attractive site. The school has a high reputation.  Whilst we were very disappointed at the recent OfSTED report and are determined to make the necessary improvements, Ofsted highlighted many strengths at the school.  The school has a wealth of resources, which assures progression and continuity of learning and gives strong pastoral care through a dedicated staff team.

The school takes its name from an area marked on early maps as Leigh’s Wood. The remaining woodland adjacent to the extensive school fields continues to be an asset for environmental studies. The school takes pride in its forest school provision; a special feature of our Foundation Stage curriculum. Classrooms are light and airy providing comfortable teaching bases, while two libraries and two large halls offer a broad curriculum.
