Our Aims

ScienceLeek High School is a high school for students aged between 13 and 19. It was designated as a specialist technology school in 2004 but its grammar school origins go back to 1900, with the present site on Springfield Road having been occupied since reorganisation in 1965. The school serves mainly the eastern side of Leek and much of the Staffordshire Moorlands, with around half our students coming from the town and half from the rural areas. In 20011/2012, there were around 430 students with 80 sixth formers and a staff of 70 including 31 teachers. 105 students entered Year 9 in September 2011.
