Principal's Welcome

A very warm welcome to Leighton Academy’s website

Mrs j young principalLeighton Academy is a friendly school where the children are placed at the centre of every decision. Our values of working hard and being kind underpin our rigorous and broad curriculum.  We invest heavily in specialist teaching in German and PE and offer a wide range of extra-curricular clubs. We are very proud of all our pupils and enjoy showing off their fantastic attitude to learning so the best way to really get a feel for the school is to visit us in action. Please contact the school office to arrange a visit.

The wheel denotes progress, forward thinking and constant improvement. The aims are all equally important and always developing.


Care and prepare; we will support and care for all our pupils, whatever their needs, and prepare them for life beyond Leighton. We aim to show them how society functions and what role they can play in the future.

Develop skills for life: The key skills of reading, writing, technology and maths are vital achievements for our pupils. However, we also aim to nurture their good health, resilience, common sense, confidence and personality. Our pupils must learn to be team players, have a go at new challenges- and find the thing that fires them. This could be art, or music, dance or football, theatre or maths. There’s a chance for everyone to shine.

Offer opportunities and broaden horizons: We aim to give all children opportunities to learn new skills and subjects that may be unfamiliar to them. We aim to introduce them to new experiences that their families might not be able to - outside the usual curriculum. By doing this we can fire imagination and build aspiration for our children. We can foster a love of learning and an enquiring mind.

Provide the most innovative teaching: great teaching gives our pupils the best opportunity to learn and grow. We aim to support our staff to aspire to be the very best teachers they can be and encourage them to innovate and embrace new technologies and techniques to help them.

Build a community to be proud of: Our school is, and always has been, at the heart of our community. We aim to build on this relationship to grow and develop. Our children will be encouraged to be respectful, polite and tolerant- in school and in their out- of- school activities. In reaching out to the wider community we will enhance our relationships with key stakeholders for our academy.
