Leigh Academy

Year 7


Dear future Leigh Academy pupil.

We are very much looking forward to you joining us at The Leigh Academy from September 2022, as our new Year 7 students.

We have so much information to share with you and we’re sure that you have lots of questions; so we have created a website for you to help with the transition to secondary education.

Here is a video that will give you an insight into life at The Leigh.

College Life

We have four colleges here at the Leigh, this colleges are very similar to houses. You will be allocated into one of these colleges and this will be the community you belong to during your time at the Leigh.

There are lots of opportunities to earn reward points for you college during lesson times and representing your college in a wide range of sports and subject specific activities that take place throughout the year.

Healthy Minds

A key part of our life at The Leigh Academy is resilience and becoming more aware and in control of our thoughts, emotions and behaviour. Our Healthy Minds Programme is delivered to every year group (Years 7-10) and aims to build on all these things. Take a look at the video.

Frequently Asked Questions

A number of parents had questions to ask when they filled out their questionnaires about you. Many of them were quite similar questions and so we have created a page where we have answered as many of those questions as we can do. Click here to take you to the page.

If you have any other questions to ask us then please click here and complete the Google Form. We will get back to you with an answer as soon as we can.
