Senior School

Drop-off for the Senior School is between 7.30m -8.30am and collection is at 3.45pm for Senior School pupils.

ONLY parents of Junior Department and Year 6 pupils will be able to drive on-site for drop-off and collection; all other parents are asked to park offsite and allow their daughter to walk into School.

Only one parent is allowed to drop off and collect their daughter from School and parents are asked not to gather at School gates and School entrances.

On arrival, Senior School girls must go straight to their form rooms and avoid mixing with girls from other Year group ‘bubbles’. Hand sanitiser is available at arrival points.

On leaving the School at 3.45pm, Senior School girls will use different exits, depending on their year group, to support social distancing.

How do School lunches work? 

Details on School lunches in the Junior Department and Senior School can be found here. 

How are parents involved in the School? 

We have a parents' group - Leicester High School Parents' Association (LHSPA).

In addition to this, parents’ evenings and reports are provided during the year. Further meetings and events are also held for existing parents and girls, especially at key transition points, such as to prepare our Year 5 girls when they move into Year 6. Where required, we will be moving events online for the 2020/2021 academic year.

How will we be updated about the School? 

General news and activities taking place in the School are regularly updated on the News section. Our social media pages are also regularly updated and we recommend you follow us. In addition to this, a Junior Department newsletter is emailed to Junior parents weekly.

Do you offer before and after-school care? 

Yes! Our Junior Department provides Before and After School Care and our Senior School provides Senior Late Supervision

What are the School Fees?

In order to provide further support to our families at this time, the fees for the academic year 2020/2021 have been frozen at the 2019/2020 level.
