    Linslade School is located in the town of Leighton Buzzard which is to the west of Central Bedfordshire. It is a co-educational middle school (deemed secondary) providing exciting learning opportunities for pupils aged 9 – 13 years. In reality, we pride ourselves on being both primary and secondary and relish the breadth of experiences we can offer whilst maintaining a supportive and caring ethos.

    Whilst the greater majority of pupils come from the town of Leighton Buzzard, a proportion of pupils come to our school from over the border in Buckinghamshire and other surrounding villages with a smaller number coming from Dunstable; a town that has seen significant changes in its school system in recent years.

    The school became a converter academy in June 2011 and, whilst it enjoys certain privileges associated with this status, continues to deliver a curriculum broadly in line with the new National Curriculum.

    Our extra-curricular provision is extensive with a diverse range of clubs and activities available to pupils before school, at lunch time and after school. Each year we achieve excellent sporting success.

    We are a Values Education School and this is reflected in our ethos and practice. There is a strong sense of community within the school and this extends to our local learning community. We have recently become members of the Chiltern Learning Trust and are now working with its Central Team in order to explore, exciting opportunities for our school, its pupils, families and staff as we move forward. We were delighted to have been judged as ‘good’ by Ofsted in 2016. This was the result of tremendous hard work, drive and commitment on the part of all the stakeholders at Linslade – hard work we are determined to take through to the next phase in our development.
