Our small size means everyone is someone at LHS and we pride ourselves on our family feel. We specialise in bringing out the very best in girls aged 3 to 18 and our School philosophy of Education, Confidence and Opportunity is key to all we do, from our Early Years to our outstanding Sixth Form. 

All LHS staff contribute towards the goal of providing a supportive, challenging and fun environment which enables our girls to achieve their potential. 



All staff have access to a wide range of benefits which include:
  • 17 weeks of holiday for teaching staff
  • Excellent annual leave provision for full-time support staff, plus UK bank holidays. 
  • Generous maternity, paternity and adoption leave
  • Subsidised lunches 
  • Private healthcare
  • Staff discount on School fees 
  • A structured CPD programme 
  • Free car parking on site 
  • Discounts from local businesses through our Shop Local Card.


We have different pension schemes covering different groups of staff which provide valuable benefits on retirement, as well as a death in service benefit. 

Our Location

We are located on a beautiful site, near to Leicester racecourse. The School has been based on this site for over 100 years, close to the shops and restaurants of leafy Stoneygate. Our location is well connected with excellent road links and just 2 miles from Leicester train station. 

Leicester itself is a vibrant and diverse city which is a hub for creativity, sport and the arts. Leicester boasts award-winning venues including the Curve Theatre, De Montfort Hall, Highcross Shopping Centre and the National Space Centre, as well as a wide range of independent shops and bars, many in close vicinity to the School.
There are several excellent housing options for staff relocating, from those very close to the School in the areas of Stoneygate, Knighton and Oadby, to those further afield in green and pleasant Leicestershire.
