Yr 11 & 12 Information

Senior Secondary

"I love working with these young adults.  They are great.  They are incredibly engaged, socially and academically, and they connect effectively with those around them.  The sense of belonging and camaraderie among senior students is key to a strong learning and nurturing environment".

Jenna Squire, Head of Secondary

 

Staff at Leighland invest in the students both educationally and emotionally, strongly supporting them in their faith. This commitment on the part of the staff creates an environment where students and teachers can work very closely together, creating a culture where our students achieve very strong academic results.  The School is committed to them growing into emotionally strong balanced young adults who are capable of finding their own way forward in life.
