Pupils comply with codes of conduct, not because an authority figure has dictated that they should, but because they respect the staff's viewpoints and have been helped to understand the reason for behaving this way.

House Living

The five houses lie at the heart of the Leighton Park community: Fryer, the Lower School House, for pupils aged 11–13 and the Senior Houses; Grove, Field, Reckitt and School for pupils aged 13–18.

The houses, with their tutor teams, provide the focus for pastoral care. Strong relationships between staff and pupils are one of the hallmarks of Leighton Park. See relationships, pastoral care and tutors.
Different age groups, boarding and day pupils mix easily within the houses and this leads to strong bonds of friendship and trust, with the older pupils being sensitive to the needs of the younger.  
Each house provides pupils with their own study area and access to leisure facilities which are shared by both boarding and day pupils, including common room, television room, library, games room. Residential accommodation is separate, but day pupils are welcome to spend time with their friends who board provided permission has been obtained from the house staff on duty.

Bedrooms are comfortable and pupils are encouraged to make them as homely as possible. Sixth Formers usually have single study bedrooms; younger pupils typically share a room with one to three others.

A co-educational environment

Each house is co-educational, with areas that girls and boys both use socially, such as a library, games, television and common rooms. In this environment pupils gain so much, and well-balanced friendships develop: a strong preparation for their lives in the future. Girls' and boys' residential areas are in separate parts of the houses.
