About us

Set in beautiful tree-lined grounds and surrounded on three sides by playing fields belonging to Uppingham School, Leighfield Academy provides a learning environment which is at once stimulating, pleasant and peaceful.

The school serves the Southern Half of Uppingham and a number of surrounding villages. Namely Belton in Rutland, Glaston, Lyddington, Seaton, Stoke Dry, Thorpe by Water, and Wardley. Some parents from outside the catchment area and even from outside the County also opt to send their children to Leighfield Academy.

Our school is part of the Discovery Schools Academies Trust

Shared Vision. Shared Values. One Aim.

Discovery Schools Academies Trust (DSAT) was incorporated on 13th June 2012 following an 18 month National Support School Partnership led by Kibworth Church of England Primary School. A formalised partnership was established with Parkland Primary School that raised outcomes for children in each school by sharing expertise as well as staff.

In September 2013 Sileby Redlands Primary School and in November 2013 Danemill Primary school joined the DSAT multi academy group. More recently we have seen the Trust grow further with Woolden Hill Primary School joining in June 2014 and Mowmacre Hill Primary School in September 2014. We now total six primary schools in the Leicestershire region with new schools also showing an interest to be part of the group.

The multi academy partnership is dedicated to improving learning and teaching by creating a culture that promotes excellence. The needs of all children are placed at the heart of all decision making regardless of the school that they attend.

Discovery Schools Academies Trust Ltd is led by Paul Stone, a National Leader of Education and supported by an executive board of directors drawn from the governing bodies of all member schoo
