Welcome to the Sir Herbert Leon Academy

I am extremely proud to have the opportunity to work as Acting Principal of this academy. Sir Herbert Leon is a genuinely community-focussed academy with a purposeful and welcoming nature. Since I started here, in January 2014, we have made rapid improvements supported by The Duston School in Northampton, an Ofsted outstanding school. Rooted in our ethos is the belief that all young people can succeed; no matter what their starting point. This drives the academy on to support our learners to success both academically and in developing rounded skills for the next stage of their lives.

In addition to the academic rigour, staff at the academy work hard to extend opportunities to students across a wide range of sporting and non-sporting activities. The academy also offers a careers and aspirations programme which develops students with the skills to succeed in the next stage of their life.

The overarching drive for us at Sir Herbert Leon is to work tirelessly to ensure quality learning opportunities and valuable experiences for all our learners.
