Situated in the heart of St Andrews, St Leonards is a forward-thinking, co-educational boarding and day school, which offers an outstanding education from five to 18 years.
St Leonards has been named as Scotland’s Independent School of the Year 2019, by the Sunday Times Schools Guide. For three years running, St Leonards has also been ranked by the Sunday Times as the Top Independent School Sixth Form in Scotland for IB/A Level results.
In the Sixth Form, pupils follow the IB Diploma Programme, which has been praised by students, parents and university admissions officers for its focus on deepening learning, offering wider subject options, and enriching minds. Indeed, 100% of leavers last year who gained a place at university were offered their first or second choice.
St Leonards Junior School is the first school in Scotland to be accredited to teach the inspiring International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. According to parents, ‘children are excited to go to school and return home brimming with ideas’.
Thanks to an ambitious £4m refurbishment programme, boarders live in stylish comfort in a country house setting, where bedrooms have
sea views beyond the playing fields. The first phase of redeveloping the boys’ boarding house, Ollerenshaw, was completed in August 2018, creating a smart, yet homely social heart to the house.
In addition, a full refurbishment of the girls’ boarding house, Bishopshall, was completed in 2016. Full, flexi and weekly boarding is available from age 11.
With the beach just a two-minute walk from the grounds, well-established links with the University of St Andrews, and seven links golf courses on the doorstep, co-curricular activities play an important role in school life.
The leading three-tier St Leonards Golf Programme continues to go from strength to strength, the Duke of Edinburgh Award is the fastest growing of all Scottish independent schools, and an exciting calendar of trips and activities ensures pupils leave St Leonards equipped with the skills, and interests, required to succeed in today’s ever-changing world.
Truly an education ‘Ad Vitam’.
