About Us

The Academy

Sir Herbert Leon Academy is an 11-19 Mixed Comprehensive in Bletchley, South Milton Keynes. Our Academy has some 630 learners and employs 105 dedicated teachers and support staff. Learners at the academy are supported to be highly ambitious, to develop a genuine enthusiasm for learning and to be proud to represent their Academy and community.


The Academy boasts some wonderful learning facilities, particularly in Sport and the Arts. There is a library, a theatre/cinema and an abundance of ICT teaching technology available in every learning environment. The ratio of computers to students is better than 1:2. In addition to this, the school has a swimming pool and a fully equipped fitness suite. This excellent breath of resources is impacting on performance where exam results are improving. Our academic progress reflects our ever improving teaching and learning together with upward trends in attendance and behaviour.
