“We are very proud of Luke and know that he will thrive when he starts his studies at college.

“Our new academic year has just started and I’ve no doubt that the students will be working hard to emulate Luke’s outstanding achievement.”

Christ Church – Stations of the Cross

The children of Christ Church planned and delivered a drama and freeze frame of the stations of the cross as an Easter reflection. The aim was to bring awareness of the events of Holy Week for children and parishioners in a link between the academy and church.

St Leonard’s CEP Academy – ‘Spirit Day’

Friday was ‘Spirit Day’. This event gives parents an opportunity to work and learn with their children. During the day each class took on a school or community improvement project. Over 75 parents, carers, grandparents attended. During the day we worked in our garden, making a new mud kitchen with welly planters and completed a local beach clean.
