Leasowes High School is an oversubscribed academy within the Invictus Education Trust, working with a strong group of schools that includes a sixth form.
The motto of ‘Aspire and Achieve’ is at the heart of everything staff do for their students.
A spokesman said: “To ‘Aspire’ is to direct our students’ hopes and ambitions towards achieving their best and fulfilling their potential.
“To ‘Achieve’ is to successfully accomplish one’s goals through hard work, effort, skill and courage.”
Headteacher Matthew Mynott said: “We aim to help each and every student to understand and reach their potential by offering an impressive range of opportunities and approaches to learning, supported by a caring and committed pastoral team who are dedicated to the health, emotional wellbeing and personal
development of each and every individual.”
Students have a multitude of opportunities in leadership.
Student Council representatives provide an active voice for their peers and fellow learners; members of the Eco-Council look closely at the school’s use of recycling and better use of the environment; peer mentors support vulnerable students who may be struggling with worries and support their transition from primary school; other leadership opportunities are also offered within curriculum areas.
“Whatever the need of the student, staff believe that there will be something to challenge, inspire or motivate them.”
The ultimate accolade for students is to represent the school as part of the prefect team led by the head boy, head girl and their deputies.
Students will also have a wide range of enrichment and extra-curricular activities.
The school has daily sporting activities, as well as opportunities to represent the school in traditional team sports.
Every year the arts department works with students on the school production and they have the opportunity to participate in a school show.
Students also work the lighting, sound and are the back stage crew.
In addition, the school is proud to offer an award-winning STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) club where they have been winners in both national and regional competitions.
Whatever the need of the student, staff believe that there will be something to challenge, inspire or motivate them.
The school is a happy and caring environment which celebrates achievement and nurtures its students.
The pastoral team include form tutors, a head of year, pastoral support managers, an attendance officer, and a nurse.
Their work ensures the safeguarding of all the students and supports them throughout their time at Leasowes.
Mr Mynott added: “Leasowes is a ‘good’ school that believes in providing an outstanding education for all its students.
“We provide a first-class curriculum offer, an enhanced extra-curricular programme and opportunities for individual personal development.
“All of these features help to imbue our students with a desire to ‘Aspire and Achieve’ and prepare them for success in future studies and work beyond Leasowes.”
