An Ideal Venue

When not in use by our pupils, many of the facilities at St Leonards are available for hire.

We pride ourselves on offering a friendly service in which our visiting groups are given the full – not shared – use of the facilities they hire outwith term time. St Leonards therefore makes an ideal venue for study seminars, group meetings, summer schools, corporate activity holidays and more, either on a residential or non residential basis.

The School is situated in the heart of St Andrews, just minutes from the town’s historic sites, award winning beaches and world famous golf courses. The cities of Edinburgh (50 minutes), Glasgow (1 ¼ hours), Aberdeen (1 ¼ hours) and Dundee (20 minutes) are easily accessed.

What can be hired?

Facilities which can be hired include:

  • 25m indoor swimming pool
  • Astroturf sports pitches
  • Expansive grass playing fields
  • Gymnasium
  • Squash courts
  • Music auditorium and teaching rooms
  • Drama and art studios
  • School Hall
  • Classrooms

St Leonards offers single, twin and dormitory accommodation for up to 150 during the Summer holidays on a full/half board basis. Rooms are serviced daily, with bed linen and towels provided. Each residence has its own lounge area with TV, free internet access, kitchen and tea and coffee making facilities, and car parking.

Meals are served in our Central Dining Room, which can accommodate up to 220 people.

It's no wonder then that leading organisations come to St Leonards on a regular basis. In recent times the School has welcomed: Heart of Midlothian Football Club, Everton Football Club, Norwich City Football Club, the World Saxophone Congress, the Emerging World Golf Tour, the Edinburgh School of English, the International Summer School of Scotland, the National Theatre of Scotland and St Andrews University.

And what do they think? AM Soccer Club has staged a highly popular summer football competition at St Leonards for the past couple of years.  Organiser Lindsay Sharp said, “The location is fantastic. We cannot speak highly enough about the facilities and staff at St Leonards.”

Many organisations, keen to secure their booking for the following year, make reservations well in advance.

Available to the community

As part of our wider community role, the School also makes its facilities available to local groups and organisations at negotiable rates.
