Welcome to LEH
Lady Eleanor Holles (LEH) is a place of curiosity and adventure, where enthusiastic and bright young minds are encouraged to be bold and brave in their thoughts, actions and dreams for the future. Pupils are given the encouragement, inspiration, and opportunity to experience new things, to take risks, and to innovate as they grow and discover more about themselves.
In March 2022, the Independent Schools' Inspectorate (ISI) carried out a Focused Compliance and Educational Quality Inspection and LEH School was found "Excellent" in all areas.

We are proud to be one of the oldest girls' schools in the UK.
Our school was founded in 1710 in Redcross Street, in the parish of St. Giles, Cripplegate, as a charity school for the education and clothing of 50 poor girls, using money left from the will of Lady Eleanor Holles. Eleanor, who died in 1708, was the sixth daughter of John Holles, 2nd Earl of Clare and Elizabeth Vere.
Understanding that an investment in an LEH education will have a transformative impact on a pupil's future, LEH is committed to building a community of talented, intellectually curious and passionate students from a wide range of backgrounds, regardless of their financial circumstances.
A very warm welcome from The Friends of LEH, the school’s parent association. As soon as your daughter joins Lady Eleanor Holles School, you automatically become a member of the Friends.
Our aim is to enhance our daughter’s educational experience as much as to support and promote a vibrant community by running various social and fundraising events throughout the year.
