The historic priory walls which bound the campus might be ancient but, within them, our facilities are thoroughly modern. They include:
- Purpose built music school and auditorium
- Indoor swimming pool
- Science, digital language and ICT laboratories
- Award winning school dining hall
- Dedicated art and drama studios
- Squash courts
- Astroturf playing pitches
- Expansive grass playing fields
In August 2012 work on a £2.5m redevelopment of the Junior School was completed, giving the youngest St Leonards pupils an exciting, state-of-the-art space in which to begin their education. The redevelopment saw the construction of a brand new building and refurbishment of existing facilities.
The School Council is committed to a continuing programme of improvement and development of the School facilities. Recent projects have included the refurbishment of the award-winning School dining hall, swimming pool and upgrading of ICT facilities. Bishopshall was our first boarding house to undergo a full renovation and refurbishment, reopening in September 2016. Work commenced on the refurbishment of Ollerenshaw in summer 2018, and St Rule is next.
