Welcome to Lealands High School – A Specialist Sports College
Lealands has established a reputation as a safe and caring learning environment, where students are encouraged to be active and enthusiastic participants in the learning process. Students enjoy learning, acquiring the skills and knowledge needed for a successful transition to adult life.Mr. C. Ginns
We are particularly proud of our students' academic achievements and examination results show a considerable, sustained improvement over the last few years. Lealands’ staff and students work extremely hard to ensure the best academic standards possible.
Of course, school life is about more than academic success. Lealands aims to provide a positive environment where young people can mature socially, physically and culturally as well as intellectually. Our focus on attainment, underpinned by strong and effective monitoring and student support structures, ensures that each individual student's needs are recognised and supported. Our school culture is based on a strong ethos of mutual respect. We are delighted by students' outstanding achievements in the arts, particularly the high quality musical and drama productions, and their excellence in both local and national sporting events.
Our use of resources are aimed at fulfilling the learning needs of our students and their environment. We are working hard to improve our facilities and during the last 2 years have added new toilets, workshop, music suite, dining room extension, new classrooms, reception area, careers area, a new ICT suite in Technology and a start of the art Hospitality and Catering facility.
We are delighted and proud to have been designated a Specialist Sports College from September 2006. This is going to impact considerably, not only on Physical Education, but on teaching and learning, resources and achievement across the curriculum.
The number of students wanting places at Lealands continues to grow and we are always oversubscribed in Year 7.
Please take the opportunity to contact us for a tour around the school and talk to students and staff.
We look forward to meeting you.
