It is wonderful to see my children turning into very caring and thoughtful adults, and their academic potential too is being realised. Both academically and socially their schooling is second to none.
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.
