“Leighton Park is a rarity, and gave me an insane and maybe ill-founded confidence in goodness… I am endlessly grateful for the friends I’ve met in the past five years.”

“What I really think makes Leighton Park different is that every single student’s individual experience can be tailored for what they love and what they are interested in. Everyone on the Park was so friendly and welcoming when I first joined."

“Sixth form at LP is a truly unique experience. In the classroom, teachers push you to your academic limits and provide support to develop you beyond them, fuelling a life long passion for your subjects and helping you achieve to the best of your ability. We are encouraged to think ‘outside the box’, beyond the syllabus and research topics of interest. Not only does LP develop you academically but also as a person.”

Ahmer | A*, A*, A*, A AT A LEVEL WITH AN A* EPQ | MEDICINE, IMPERIAL COLLEGE
