Welcome to Leighton Academy

A welcome from the principal:

Leighton Academy is the replacement for the outstandingly successful Leighton Primary School.  The talented staff and governors of Leighton Academy are passionate about expanding the curriculum and reinvigorating our children's commitment to learning; making it real and unforgettable. As a large primary academy but with a strong community ethos, we are able to offer specialist teaching in computing, food and design technology, German, music, art and PE whilst maintaining a relentless approach to embedding high standards in the core skills of reading, writing and maths.

We are a happy school where everyone is valued and given a breadth of opportunities; ensuring a love of life long learning and preparation for the next stage of their journey. Developing a close relationship between home and school is central to our vision and as such our door is always open.

 Please feel free to contact us to arrange a visit and see the academy at work.
