Inspiring Achievement

We are a school that inspires Achievement with Values, Character and Community. This is the Leighton Park difference and has been since our Quaker foundation in the nineteenth century. The School is distinctive and original in each of these areas.

“Leighton Park provides an incredibly open community, encouraging people to speak up and think for themselves. The commitment of teachers, and the way they support us as students, is remarkable. My teachers want me to succeed and do well, and this is very apparent in the way they teach. I’m provided with a lot of support if I feel like I need it, and you generally feel ‘safe' in an academic point of view.”

“Leighton Park is made special through mutual respect between staff and students. It allows students to speak freely, and teachers to answer honestly in the most helpful way. The LP House system meant I always had a friendly community to socialize with, and you’re never too far from friends in other houses.”

“I have a huge debt to repay to the Leighton Park staff, especially music, for providing me with so many opportunities and having a belief in my abilities. I certainly wouldn’t be dreaming of a career in Music, let alone applying to conservatories, without their support.”

“I love the caring atmosphere and the ethos within the school. The time for reflection during school assemblies is something I greatly value as a time for contemplation - a break from the stress that school can build up. Relationships between the students and teachers are also very important here, and the fact that Leighton Park is a boarding school means that school does feel like a second home.”

"Leighton Park is kind, I love the fact that pupils can call teachers by their first names. There is a lot of mutual respect - with teachers having a lot of respect for individuality - no matter what the child is trying to do, the teachers will try and support them."
