Welcome to LEH
Lady Eleanor Holles (LEH) is a remarkable school. It is a school where girls successfully combine impressive intellectual endeavour with enthusiastic engagement well beyond academia. The girls’ public exam results and their sporting achievements are among the best in the country. Their musical and dramatic activities place them among the best of young performers. And most importantly of all, their stimulating and happy approach to all they do makes LEH a joy for me to lead.
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.
