Leadenham Church of England Primary School is a rural village school. We pride ourselves on having small class numbers so there is a high ratio of staff to children. The staff, children and parents all work together to produce a happy family atmosphere in which each child can find security, friendship and experience success.
Our School was started in the 19th century, held in one of the houses in the village and financed by the Church, until the school building was put up in 1857, on land donated by General Reeve, and paid for by a subscription list opened in the village. The first headteacher was Mr. David Wilding, whose logbook of daily school events still exists. The Church retained its important role and the School has always kept its ‘Aided’ status. The original building has been extended several times; firstly adding indoor cloakrooms; adding the junior classroom in 1993 and in 2003 extending the infant classroom to include a large ‘wet’ area and converting the school house into a lower junior classroom, reception area, staff room and head’s office.
