We are delighted to share some fantastic news with you all.  On Friday 27th May, our intrepid robotics team attended a regional final competition as part of our involvement in the Tomorrow’s Engineers Robotics Space Challenge.  The team were really put through their paces all day, and had to complete various challenges as well as showcasing their achievements over the past couple of months in our after school club.  All the hard work really paid off, not only did they win the Teamwork Award but we were thrilled to be crowned regional champions!  The next step is to attend the National Finals in Coventry at the end of June.


  Welcome to the Sir Herbert Leon Academy

Principal’s Welcome

Sir Herbert Leon Academy is a well-established community school which has made significant improvements since September to enable our students to achieve.  Progress is happening at all levels from the completion of our prestigious 3G Astroturf, which provides our students with exceptional training facilities, to major re-structuring of school systems and structures.

This year we have changed the structure of the school day, going from a six lesson day of 50 minutes to a five lesson day of 60 minutes, to improve depth of understanding and subject mastery. In addition, we moved from a two-week to a one-week timetable for consistency and we streamlined the curriculum. All of these changes will have major impact on the outcomes for our learners over the next few years. The responsibilities of our Senior Leadership team have been changed to match the needs to the Academy going forward and we have made key appointments for September. I am delighted that proven and experienced teachers, who put children first, are joining us and recognise that this is the school for them. The quality of learning in our classrooms continues to improve and maximising student learning time is our priority.

In our restructuring, we have built on the levels of pastoral support we offer students. The combination of higher expectations of student work and behaviour, together with increased support mechanisms, reinstates that we are a school that cares about its students above and beyond their grades.

Our community is increasingly proud of its school and this will continue to develop and strengthen as the changes we have made become fully embedded. An environment of mutual respect and collaboration between school, home and student will ensure that our children benefit and leave us ready for the next stage of their lives.
