What The Good Schools Guide says..
By the time you walk across the piazza to the fabulous, architecturally stunning leisure centre (2012), you’ll have forgotten that the 1960s ever happened. Equipped with everything from trampolines to cricket nets and a state of the art dance studio and gym that’s open to pupils before and after school, plus an outside viewing balcony overlooking a vast Astroturf, playing fields and beyond as far as the eye can see across farmland.
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.
