St Leonards School
Set in one of the most inspiring locations in the UK, St Andrews, St Leonards School fuses exceptional teaching and academic results with a friendly, down-to-earth atmosphere and a world of opportunity in its self-contained campus – all surrounded by medieval walls. Pupils shine as a result of the inspirational vibe that comes from being at the heart of this famous university town.
Only several minutes away, idyllic beaches, historic landmarks and stunning countryside can all be found. Moreover, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee Airports are within easy reach.
An academic powerhouse
The majority of pupils who attend the School are from the surrounding area, though St Leonard’s heavy favouritism for International Baccalaureate (IB) qualifications has given it a prospering global outlook. Indeed, students from more than 20 different nationalities attend the School.
At sixth-form level, the School is the only one in the country to focus 100% on the IB diploma. The worldwide average is 30 points, though St Leonards regularly achieves an average of 34 points.
Year after year, pupils also achieve outstanding results in GCSE, IGCSE and Pre-IB exams.
Boarders enjoy the luxury of modern accommodation with a country house feel.
Links with a prestigious university
St Leonards annually appoints an Associate Researcher to act as a point of contact in the University for St Leonards’ pupils. Pupils from the School can access University library facilities and receive lessons from visiting lecturers.
Outside the classroom
In addition to art, drama and music co-curricular activities, St Leonards has its own golf programme, where, for a very low fee, pupils can play the most famous golf links in the world, located just a few hundred metres from the School.
“At St Leonards the enriching spirit of the IB pervades everything we do, enabling our students to develop and step into the world with confidence and maturity. St Leonards is more than a top quality school, it’s an internationally recognised qualification for life…”
