welcome to st leonards

Located in the beautiful University town of St Andrews, St Leonards is an independent boarding and day school, providing an outstanding education for boys and girls aged 5 -18. Full, flexi and weekly boarding is available from age 10.

The International Baccalaureate is at the heart of life at St Leonards, from the holistic and globally-recognised curriculum to values of the IB Learner Profile. St Leonards is one of the only schools in the UK to actively offer all four inspiring IB programmes, from the PYP, through the MYP, to the IB Career-related Programme and Diploma Programme in the Sixth Form.

St Leonards has been pioneering since its foundation in 1877. Most recently, it was named the UK's Independent School of the Year 2022 for International Student Experience, and is a leader in boarding, as winner of the BSA Boarding Research Award 2022 (Boarding & Wellbeing).

Academic achievement is strong, co-curricular activities are wide-ranging - from team sports to music, art, drama and beyond - and the sense of warmth and community is what makes a St Leonards education so special. St Leonards pupils are equipped with the skills, values and education for life, mirroring the School's motto 'Ad Vitam'.
