In a Catholic comprehensive school that encourages excellence for all and in all, Music and the Arts are essential to the pupils’ academic, spiritual and emotional development. There is a very strong musical tradition at St Leonard’s and the department is housed in a purpose built area with a recording studio and practice rooms. There are numerous ensembles and choirs in which pupils are encouraged to participate. Every pupil is also encouraged to perform in the regular formal and informal concerts that are held during the year.
Our Art department, also exceptionally well-resourced and managed is a thriving centre for creativity, again with every pupil having the opportunity to exhibit their work at least once a year in our Art Exhibition. There are other smaller exhibitions during the academic year that focus on themes and styles and various works of art are displayed around the school building.
