Coeducational, Junior and Senior, All Through, Day, Boarding and Flexi/Weekly Boarding School, IB School.


Situated in the heart of St Andrews, St Leonards is a forward-thinking, co-educational boarding and day school, which offers an outstanding education from five to 18 years.

St Leonards has been named as Scotland’s Independent School of the Year 2019 by the Sunday Times Schools Guide, and for three years running, has been ranked by the Sunday Times as the Top Independent School Sixth Form in Scotland for IB/A Level results.

Just one hour from Edinburgh, full, flexi and weekly boarding is available from age 10, and thanks to an ambitious £4m refurbishment programme, boarders live in modern, stylish comfort in a country house setting, where bedrooms have sea views beyond the school playing fields.

St Leonards is a leading IB school, combining academic excellence with historic surroundings, beautiful sandy beaches, and an unrivalled Golf Programme, which gives students access to all seven St Andrews Links golf courses, including the Old Course, as well as coaching at the state-of-the-art St Andrews Links Golf Academy.

Outdoor learning and co-curricular activities play an important role in life at St Leonards. The school motto, Ad Vitam, is interpreted as ‘for life’, and the IB encourages pupils to develop interests, both in and outside the classroom, equipping them with the skills required to succeed in today’s ever-changing world.

Leavers go on to a wide range of top universities, both in the UK and around the world. The IB has been praised by students, parents and university admissions officers for its focus on deepening learning, offering wider subject options, and enriching minds.
