  • The Leys School is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 11 to 18 in Cambridge. The school was established in 1875 and blends its traditional values of courtesy, tolerance, respect and decency with a forward-looking approach to education.

    Headmaster Martin Priestley says: 'Dedicated staff and superb facilities combine powerfully as we prepare young people for the challenges which lie ahead at university and beyond. Yet I have always believed that school is, or should be, about far more than merely “preparation for life”. Indeed, my ambition is that Leysians will be able to look back on their experiences here as amongst the most intrinsically rewarding, challenging and stimulating chapters of their developing lives.'

    'Set in the centre of the beautiful and stimulating city of Cambridge, one of the world’s leading cultural and academic cities, our unique location allows our pupils unrivalled opportunities to achieve the exceptional.'
