School Introduction

Leighton Park School is a co-educational Quaker public school for both boarding and day pupils. It is situated in Reading, Berkshire, England. The school was founded in 1890.

The teaching of young people has always been a priority for Quakers; from the late seventeenth century onwards, many were involved in establishing schools for their own children and others in need. In this light, Leighton Park was opened in 1890 by members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), as a public school for boys, with the specific aim of preparing academically able boys to enter university, to think for themselves and to develop self-reliance.

Nicknamed the Quaker Eton, Leighton Park has sent a high proportion of its pupils to Oxford or Cambridge. To this day it retains academic prestige, being described as a school that possesses outstanding teaching, facilities and excellent academic results [that] give it the qualities that parents seek in a school recently by ISBI schools
