Leighton Park is located in Reading, right next to the University of Reading.
If you’re using a satnav, please use RG2 7ED to enter the School by our Shinfield Road entrance.
Leighton Park is conveniently located for London and International boarding students, with Reading only 25 minutes from London Paddington on the train and 30 minutes from Heathrow airport in a taxi.
This tour is intended to give a glimpse into some of the spaces that our students love. It does not represent every department so please view our curriculum and course finder pages to see the 90 co-curricular options, 27 GCSE-level choices and impressive range of programmes on our A Level and IB Diploma Programme in the Sixth Form.
A significant proportion of the Park is dedicated to sport and outdoor learning opportunities, but it also provides that all-important space in which your child can take some time for peaceful reflection. These moments of quiet tie back perfectly to our Quaker roots, too. Our students benefit from regular trips to Oxford and London but enjoy the calm, beatuful and safe environment of our 65 acres of parkland.
There’s plenty of versatile open space within the Park in which your child can walk, run and stay active.
Our beautiful grounds are large enough to house a number of purpose-built sports facilities, too:
“Since coming to Leighton Park I have come to appreciate the sense of calm, through the stillness of the Park setting and the reflective silence at assemblies. This has really helped me settle in to the school as a new student and provides a contrast between the pressures of academic study and the temperament of the school as a whole.” Irene, Sixth Former
“The Park is well maintained, and a fantastic environment to learn in. There aren’t many schools where you can be sitting at your bedroom window and look over such a beautiful and natural landscape.” Victoria, Sixth Former
“My daughter told me that during her GCSE exams she could take a walk through the trees and take a deep breath and feel calm, there aren’t many schools where you can say that” – Current parent
