The Leys is the only co-educational boarding and day school in Cambridge. The Leys School is a close-knit, engaged, friendly community in which pastoral care is seen as our top priority. We see ourselves as a big, small school; big enough to offer a huge range of opportunities, but small enough that we are able to get to know individuals, with all their individual strengths and unique characters and are able to encourage them to strive to be the best they can be.

Established in 1875, The Leys values its history, yet it blends traditional values – courtesy, tolerance, respect, decency – with a forward and outward-looking approach to education. Dedicated staff and superb facilities combine powerfully as we prepare young people for the challenges which lie ahead at university and beyond.
