Leighton Middle School is a popular and expanding 9-13 years school. Located in the centre of Leighton Buzzard it has unique buildings and grounds.
We are a happy and successful school where we seek to value every individual. Our school aim promotes and encourages personal excellence and we endeavour to develop the all round talents of individual pupils through our broad academic and extra curricular programme.
We have high academic, pastoral and teaching standards with committed long standing staff members. We provide high quality training and support for teachers and have strong links with our Learning Community, Challenge Partners and Pixl.
We are able to offer our pupils a wide range of opportunities due the excellent facilities and experiences we provide. The school has a purpose built hub for Year 5, which opened in 2017, and specialist rooms for Art, Design Technology, Food Fabric Technology, Science, Music, ICT and PE. All rooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards with wireless connectivity and most have visualizers.
Due to our expansion programme, we are seeking an outstanding teacher of English, and invite applications from colleagues with KS2, KS3, KS4 or indeed cross phase experience to join our dedicated and hardworking English department in September 2018 or possibly earlier.
Leighton Middle School is very proud of its students and staff. We have excellent academic standards and work hard to create a safe and enjoyable learning environment for all. This is an exciting time for Leighton Middle as we expand and we build on our fantastic SATs successes of 2016 and 2017, where in both years we were above national and local standards. A significant number of KS3 pupils exceed age related expectations and we are regularly the top performing middle school with our outturn data.
This is a very exciting time to be joining a highly motivated and successful team. Applications are welcome from newly qualified as well as more experienced professionals.
We actively promote opportunities for personal and professional development and as a school are committed to Personal Excellence.
We welcome visits to the school.
