St Leonards is a pretty magical place. Our boys and girls are taught to learn effectively, communicate clearly, respect others and participate with purpose.

St Leonards is one of the UK's leading independent schools. From our beautiful campus in the historic university town of St Andrews, we offer an outstanding boarding and day education for boys and girls aged 5-18. St Leonards is the first International Baccalaureate (IB) continuum school in Scotland, and one of just two in the UK, delivering the inspiring and globally-recognised curriculum from Year 1 to Year 13.
