Our Story

Leagrave Primary School is located in the west of Luton and is in the top 10% or deprived schools across the country. It is an above average sized primary school with approximately 500 pupils and 70 staff.

Under the direction of the Headteacher, Mrs Gillespie, the school has gone from strength to strength and recently received an Outstanding judgement from Ofsted.

We believe that ability and attitude promotes results. If you want great results, you need great people with talent and a positive approach. We have established this at Leagrave and with excellent training we continue to build capacity for the future.

Of course, creating this environment takes determination and resilience – it is not easy and we don’t pretend it is. We are a real school with real challenges, but if you are interested, we can offer you an insight into what works for us and may work for you.

Our Philosophy

Our school improvement work is underpinned by our whole mission, ‘Striving for Excellence and Learning for Life’.

We start from honest and accurate starting points, enabling us to work collaboratively and agree the right way forward to ensure excellence for all. We are driven by positive outcomes for pupils and nurture a culture of high aspirations in all areas of the curriculum.

Our school ethos promotes high expectations of achievement and conduct, ensuring everything we do prepares children and staff for lifelong learning. Our school community believes ‘we can and we will’.


Why Leagrave

“Leagrave offers honest, practical and strategic support. It’s refreshing to work with a school that understands the real challenges and strives to find a solution.”

Headteacher, Lancot Challenger Academy
