We are an oversubscribed 11-16 girls’ school located in Knighton although we receive applications from all over Leicester City and beyond. We are unique as the only girls’ multi faith state school in Leicester and Leicestershire. With a reputation for innovation and success, Sir Jonathan North is an inclusive, friendly and diverse community.
As part of the Lionheart Academy Trust, a family of 11 schools in Leicester and Leicestershire, we are able to collaborate, foster exceptional practice and draw on regional and national expertise in order to provide students with the best learning experience we can.
I am proud to have led Sir Jonathan North since January 2019 and I feel it has its own unique ethos. Our core values, Respect, Resilience, Resourcefulness and Reflectiveness, underpin all that we do and are reflected in our culture. These values were developed in conjunction with staff, students and parents.
At Sir Jonathan North our simple aim is to ‘create good people’. In order to do this we need a curriculum that provides both academic excellence and holistic development. In other words, we take every opportunity to develop the ‘whole child’. We do this by aiming for excellence in everything we do.
Sir Jonathan North and the Lionheart Academy Trust are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
