WELCOME TO LEIGH SCHOOL
Our aim at Leigh School is to provide educational programmes that cater for and respect individual learning needs, and that foster the growth of every child’s unique abilities. As a small school with low student teacher ratios we can develop deeper relationships with our students to learn what really motivates and interests them.
We are situated in the close knit semi-rural coastal community of Leigh, which is on the East Coast out from Warkworth & Matakana, approximately one hours drive north of Auckland. Our school is just a 5 minute walk from the water’s edge.
The school was established in 1874 and the roll now sits at around 60 children on average. Most of our children have transitioned from the adjacent Leigh Pre-School, and once they have completed their schooling in Year 6 at Leigh, they usually continue on to Mahurangi College in Warkworth.
We have an emphasis on fostering student agency – where the student’s voice is heard and we offer a broad range of learning opportunities within the school and classroom. Leigh School values diversity and the uniqueness of each child.
