Welcome to the Sir Herbert Leon Academy

Head of School’s Welcome

Sir Herbert Leon Academy is a well-established community school which has made significant improvements since September to enable our students to achieve.  Progress is happening at all levels from the completion of our prestigious 3G Astroturf, which provides our students with exceptional training facilities, to major re-structuring of school systems and structures.

Last term, we changed the structure of the school day, going from a six lesson day of 50 minutes to a five lesson day of 60 minutes, to improve depth of understanding and subject mastery. In addition, we moved from a two-week to a one-week timetable for consistency and we streamlined the curriculum. We also established our Non-Negotiables for Students, Staff and the Senior Leadership Team to raise the expectation of student Behaviour For Learning. All of these changes will have major impact on the outcomes for our learners over the next few years.

Following these substantial changes, the academy is now embedding its systems and structures to maximise student achievement. We are working hard to make this school one of opportunity and aspiration alongside academic achievement.  Our work on promoting Student Voice, our establishment of a regular Parent Forum and our use of new technology to improve  communication are all helping to create and promote our vision for a successful future. Student achievement is tracked rigorously and our pastoral support structures support our students and their families.

Students at Sir Herbert Leon Academy are increasingly involved in school life and contribute to decision-making at the highest level. Our community is increasingly proud of its school and this will continue to develop and strengthen as the changes we have made become fully embedded.

An environment of mutual respect and collaboration between school, home and student will ensure that our children benefit and leave us ready for the next stage of their lives.
