A Leys Education is one which is built firmly on three main foundations; Academic, Pastoral and Wider Curriculum.More information
The Purpose of The Leys is to play our part in changing the world for the better.
We do this by making a positive difference to the lives, values and prospects of Leysians, by being professional, caring and rewarding in developing and managing our staff, by being a responsive and trusted partner to our parents, and by making a beneficial and sustainable contribution to the wider community.
By foundation and structure, The Leys is a boarding community. We also place great value on being a “big, small school” embedded in the heart of Cambridge, and on giving Leysians a rich and rewarding academic and wider school experience – one they find valuable both intrinsically and in preparing for their futures. We seek, in the spirit of our Methodist founders and our Christian values, to send Leysians out into the world ready – academically, culturally, morally, physically, spiritually and socially – to live fulfilling lives which will make a positive contribution to society.
In order to achieve our Purpose, we aim to deliver an education which:
The combination of our distinctive ethos and world-class location makes The Leys unique. We seek constantly to improve, learning from best practice in academic, pastoral and wider curricular provision, to be the best that we can be in bringing these enduring aims to life. Thus, by the time of our 150th Anniversary in 2025, our ambition is to be recognised as an outstanding city boarding school which lives by its core values and which succeeds in delivering on its purpose.
