Inspire, Empower, Flourish!


We believe every child deserves the very best start in life and here at Swithland we give each child the opportunity to grow: personally, academically and spiritually. Our children do consistently make outstanding progress academically and achieve the highest results - and we believe this is because of how we nurture each child within the Christian ethos of our school.


Every child knows just how much he or she is valued for just who they are within our school and this gives them the confidence to strive to 'live life in all its fullness.' (John 10:10).

We do this by working in partnership with parents, the whole school community and Church - building relationships that have the most positive impact on developing our children. That relationship starts from the very first contact with the school; everyone is welcome to join our school family. 


If you would like to apply for a place to our school, do not hesitate to arrange a look around the school while it is in action, applications are then made directly to Leicestershire County Council. The time arrange a visit is during the Autumn term preceding your application for your child to start school the following August.


In the meantime, we have created some youtube videos to show you just what an exciting place our school.




'Swithland St Leonard's is an inclusive school where the wellbeing of all stakeholders is of paramount importance and where both adults and pupils flourish...they strive to enrich the lives of everyone in the 'school family' enabling them to flourish within an aspirational  and loving, learning community.'
