Together We’re Happier
The small size of our community means our staff get to know each student as an individual and meaningful connections are made.
Calling teachers by their first names breaks down some of the traditional barriers to communication and helps students to feel they will be listened to. We believe that pupils are entitled to explanation and discussion, which encourages self-discipline.
"What the children love about Leighton Park is that they are allowed to be who they are - they are not expected to be something they don't want to be."
All-round approach to learning and self-growth
Our Quaker values of honesty, integrity and equality underpin the relationships between students and teachers, with an emphasis on mutual respect. We look out for each other in the same way any family would.
Students are supported by strong tutor and house systems. Tutors see their ten tutees twice every day and are responsible for students’ personal and academic development. Such close and frequent contact helps tutors to develop very close relationships with their tutees and pick up on small details that might be missed in other schools.
