Leicester High School for Girls Logo

2015 ISI Inspection Report

Excellent in every category


It is almost impossible not to get involved at Leicester High, because, like many girls’ schools, we are not huge, so participation levels in activities are high. Everyone can do DofE, everyone can receive coaching in badminton or netball, everyone can do debating from the age of 10. 

Through taking part in a variety of activities, the girls develop in confidence and build their life-skills from the age of 3 upwards. Their learning is enriched, they are inspired by others and they aspire to aim high in life.

The girls feel comfortable taking part in a whole host of activities at Leicester High. It does not matter if they are not the best, fastest, or brightest - though we have plenty who are. The school has a safe and supportive culture, which encourages all girls to have a go, take part, and learn.
