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. It has its own building, its own area in our grounds and staff who work exclusively with this age group.

The start of friendships, responsibility and learning

Throughout their first year with us, your child will get great support from the older Year 8 mentors. This develops a strong sense of community and belonging, which they’ll feel throughout their time at the School. Kindness and happiness are prized.

Wrap-around care

Our wrap-around care means that students can choose to stay until 7pm if they wish. It gives them the chance to try new activities and have dinner with their friends – and all at no extra cost. And with 90 co-curricular hobbies available, they’ll never be short of something to do.

The first steps to the next level

Throughout Year 7 and 8, we encourage project-based learning, collaboration, critical thinking and creative problem solving. By weaving these qualities through our varied curriculum, we aim to give every child confidence in their abilities. This lays a strong foundation for their move to senior school in Year 9.

"My child's experience has been outstanding. He has grown tremendously from a very shy, non-confident child who joined in Year 7 to a very confident young man who is leaving Leighton Park happy, content, satisfied, has been pushed academically, pushed with his sport and music - and has enjoyed every aspect of it."
