Welcome to Leighton Park from Matthew Judd
Take a look +

Matthew Judd, Head of Leighton Park, gives an overview of the School and explains some of the features that make Leighton Park one of the top performing Schools in England.

Despite our Sixth Form students’ academic progress placing us in the top 1% of secondary schools in the country, we are no results factory. We believe it’s our role to develop courageous and happy young people who are environmentally-conscious, have a strong global awareness and don’t shy away from making a stand. We aim to give students the skills they need to be change-makers.
