The school caters particularly well for gifted and talented children for whom our normal school curriculum is designed. Additional provision is made for the exceptionally gifted or talented child. The selective nature of the school entrance test means that all pupils are able to follow the same curriculum, but the school does provide short one-to-one courses of learning support, when needed, for those with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dyspraxia, the cost of which is additional to the normal school fee. Pupils with physical disabilities can be accommodated depending on the severity of their condition: there is wheel-chair access to most parts of the school. Special educational needs are always dealt with on an individual basis and enquiries about the level of provision that can be offered are welcome.

“Enhancing the school experience, inside and outside the classroom
Lady Eleanor Holles (LEH) is a remarkable school. It is a school where pupils successfully combine impressive intellectual endeavour with enthusiastic engagement well beyond academia. The students’ 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.
There is so much more to LEH life than academic achievement: if young people left here with excellent exam results alone, we would be disappointed. Our goal is that LEH pupils become expert learners, unafraid to tackle new and challenging ideas, prepared to take risks, and able to learn from failure.
Our school motto “Hope Favours the Bold” sums it up beautifully – at LEH, pupils learn to be courageous and ever hopeful, optimistic and determined in all that they do.
Throughout its 300 year history LEH has produced many remarkable women. If you think your daughter would enjoy joining their ranks, please come and visit us. Only by seeing the school in action will you get a true flavour of all that an LEH education offers.
I look forward to meeting you in person.
Mrs Heather Hanbury
