WELCOME TO LEIGH SCHOOL
In March 2017 we received a beautiful brand new purpose built classroom. This classroom is used by Te Waipuna Year 0/1/2 and Te Awa which is Year 3/4 and backs onto our productive school garden. During 2022 the original learning spaces have been revamped to create a beautiful open learning space for our Year 5/6 Te Moana students.
Leigh School has small class sizes and an excellent student to teacher ratio. As all of our classes are composite classes, children learn from those older than themselves and are encouraged to mentor younger students.
Our senior class students learn mentoring and leadership skills and actively participate in reading programmes with the younger children. Young students are encouraged and inspired by our older children, creating a whānau like atmosphere of helping and caring for each other – and we believe this results in well rounded, connected and responsible young people leaving the school at the end of their time here.
