About Leighfield Primary School

Set in beautiful tree-lined grounds and surrounded on three sides by playing fields belonging to Uppingham School, Leighfield Academy provides a learning environment which is at once stimulating, pleasant and peaceful.

The school serves the Southern Half of Uppingham and a number of surrounding villages. Namely Belton in Rutland, Glaston, Lyddington, Seaton, Stoke Dry, Thorpe by Water, and Wardley. Some parents from outside the catchment area and even from outside the County also opt to send their children to Leighfield Academy.

We want our children to:

  • Reach their full potential
  • Develop a positive self-image
  • Be responsible and make informed choices 

We help children accomplish this by:

  • Providing  a supportive and caring environment
  • Promoting high achievement
  • Encouraging independent learning
