“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.”

Aamina

A*, A, A at A Level | English Literature, University of Edinburgh

“When I joined the school everyone was incredibly supportive when I needed help with anything. This is something that I didn’t experience as much at my previous school, and is one of the reasons why I enjoy my time as LP so much."

“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
