“A world class education for global learners”

About Us

Our aim is to be successful team of pioneering schools who share a mission to stand out as exceptional organisations. Every Academy in the Leading Edge family endeavours to be the best that it can be by using the latest thinking and research to inform their practice and thereby provide the very best education available for the young people in their care.

We are a group of high performing schools who continue to be trail-blazers for outstanding educational approaches in a range of areas including curriculum and assessment, well being, the use of IT to enhance creativity and productivity, outdoor education and sport to name just a few. This determination to lead the way ensures that we continue to offer world class learning, sport, arts, citizenship and STEM experiences to every child or young person.

We believe that educational success goes hand in hand with personal development in equal measure , striving to make our students a hallmark of the best of global youth. Academic and personal skills are developed with equal commitment to ensure that young people look at the world with critically developed minds, equipped with excellent qualifications and are great characters to go into society with an ethical and passionate desire to make the world a better place.

To support this we even have our own DfE accredited teaching school, the Applied Minds Teaching School. The school trains new and existing teachers in the latest teaching methods shared with our international partners. Every teacher takes part in our own Continuous Training and Improvement Programme to guarantee that the teaching we do will remain outstanding whatever changes the education system might throw at us .

We are committed to making a difference to the lives and opportunities of the young people in our care and believe we can and should provide our learners with an education that is fit for the challenges of the 21st century.
