Welcome to LPS

It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the Leicester Preparatory School website. We hope that it will provide you with an insight into our School community’s life and work.

The school enjoys a highly ambitious and forward-looking philosophy where the individual child is at the heart of every decision. We have educated Leicester children for over 136 years and use the best educational principles as the solid foundations for providing an exciting, innovative, and modern educational experience. We prepare pupils for the global, diverse world in which they live. We are, in practice, a school that mirrors the wonderful diversity of Leicester.

First and foremost, a school must be a fun, safe place. A child who is happy and secure in school will thrive and learn and thereby achieve. Our school is small and deliberately so. We are determined to maintain an enviable teacher: pupil ratio, enabling us to tailor the curriculum and learning styles to the individual resulting in a bespoke education for each child within a supportive and inclusive atmosphere.

At Leicester Preparatory School, we guide children to discover an appetite for learning and give them the skills and attitude to face future challenges so that they can approach the next stage of their education with confidence and enthusiasm. This way, they grow into the adults they were born to become.

No website can replace an actual visit. However, we greatly look forward to welcoming you to our school and having the opportunity to share the exceptional ethos and atmosphere of life at Leicester Preparatory School.
