A school within a school
All our new students arriving into Year 7 and 8 are welcomed into Fryer House, our school within a school. Students benefit from all the facilities Leighton Park has to offer but they also have their own building, its own area in our grounds, and with staff who specialise with this age group. Students can enjoy Fryer House during lunchtime and after their lessons. It is also home for our students who choose to board on a flexi, weekly or full time basis.

The first steps to the next level
Friendships, responsibility and learning
Our Year 7s talk about their experience of joining Leighton Park
Our Year 7 students come from a number of primary and prep schools in the Reading area. Our comprehensive transition programme provides a number of opportunities to get to know their new school prior to joining. All new students are invited to our Newcomers’ Day the day before the start of term, so that they can get to know each other and start to become familiar with the Park. Our Fryer Camping experience on the first weekend of term is a wonderful way for our 60 new Fryer students to get to know each other and their Tutor team.
