Principal’s Welcome


“The principal communicates a clear vision for the school. She brings to life the school’s mission to provide a good all-round education for pupils who have a talent and passion for the performing arts or sport. As a result of her clarity of purpose, teachers, pupils, parents and carers are all committed to the school’s success.” 

(OFSTED, January 2019)

‘Perform to your Potential’ is our mantra.

At LeAF Studio, our aim is for every learner to be able to move seamlessly from LeAF Studio into employment, professional performance or university, fully equipped with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding to purposefully engage in all of the challenges and opportunities they will experience.

As Principal, I am very proud to lead LeAF Studio. We provide a bespoke education for 13-19 year olds, combining a core academic curriculum with high quality vocational studies in:

Performing Arts – including dance, drama, musical theatre, music and music technology

Sport – including football, golf, boxing and supporting the individual sports through strength and conditioning

LeAF Studio actively promotes and develops individual excellence and outstanding collaboration for all its students across the whole curriculum. Our teachers and industry specialist coaches support the development needs of each individual student ensuring that personal resilience and motivation are at the forefront. We share parents’ wishes that students leave LeAF Studio with strong academic achievement alongside their chosen specialism to give each student every opportunity to succeed in their future. We are passionate about the unique educational experience we offer our students and welcome you to visit us during a working day to see our quality provision first hand.

In addition we offer taster days to prospective students throughout the academic year to enable them to truly experience the educational opportunities on offer and make an informed decision as to whether LeAF Studio is the right school for their future aspirations.

I look forward to welcoming you to LeAF Studio, where you will see that through high expectations our students really do ‘Perform to their Potential’ and become high achievers.
