Balancing mind, body and Soul
LEH is a welcoming, safe community where you will establish strong relationships, learning alongside other bright students. You’ll be inspired to achieve your academic, artistic and athletic potential, but it’s also essential that you are happy, well-adjusted and fulfilled. That’s why you’ll be supported through every success and failure: the good times and the bad.
There’s always someone there to listen
Our Tutor Groups are small, with an average of just ten girls in each and you’ll have the same Form Tutor throughout the two years you’re with us. They’ll be your mentor, someone you’ll meet with every day who’ll help you excel academically and develop your talents. They’ll also oversee your UCAS application and help you create a compelling personal statement.
Friendships that last a lifetime
Our year groups are close-knit and have a real sense of identity. The friendships you forge will form an essential support network in the years to come. Our House system encourages you to connect with girls throughout the school, giving you the opportunity to become a mentor and role model for the younger girls.
We make your health and wellbeing our priority
We have two School Nurses on site and you can refer yourself to our Counsellors at any time. We hold classes and workshops to support your personal, social, health and economic education and we involve parents and carers through our series of Parent Talk events.

We take online security very seriously
We have a dedicated Digital Safety Coordinator and a ‘Digital Mentor’ system that trains sixth formers to go into classes and talk to younger pupils about staying safe online.
You, and your parents, can talk to us
As well as timetabled meetings during the year, your parents can speak to the Head Mistress, Assistant Head and Heads of Year whenever they have any concerns. You’ll find their contact details on the Parent Portal.
Pastoral care is excellent and highly successful, supporting the pupils' wellbeing, further enhanced by excellent arrangements to promote their welfare, health and safety.
