What the school says...

Leventhorpe is an exciting place in which to learn and a caring environment where every student is both academically challenged and carefully supported. Staff, parents and students work together to create a community based on secure, shared values of Excellence, Commitment and Respect. This is at the heart of everything we do here and informs all aspects of the school, from the individual curriculum that enables all students to achieve the highest possible academic standards, to the outstanding pastoral system that ensures that the needs of each student are met fully.

The school's Ofsted inspection (Jan 2012) rated it as outstanding in every area as well as outstanding overall. 2012 saw the school becoming a National Support School and Mr Locke becoming a National Leader of Education.
