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.

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.
Our students have access to our Google Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), where they’ll be able to use our online learning resources, collaborate with each other, and complete assignments.
Our forward looking approach to learning technology helped us adapt very quickly during the lockdowns, and to support students who have had to isolate. During our evaluation of distance learning during lockdown in May 2020, 95% of families agreed or strongly agreed that the lesson provision in Google Classroom had been of excellent quality
