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. The first phase of refurbishing Ollerenshaw was completed in August 2018, with phase two scheduled for summer 2019, and St Rule is next.
