Welcome to South Lee School

At South Lee, we believe that if you create an environment where children feel happy, secure, challenged and valued as individuals, they will thrive.

In a fast-paced world, we need our children to be adaptable and flexible, to be able to problem solve and work collaboratively, to be able to think critically and most of all to be resilient. South Lee is a forward-thinking school, always looking for ways to enhance and ignite intellectual curiosity in our children.

We want them to become independent learners, to ask questions, to challenge what they already know, to learn new ways of thinking and to be the best they can possibly be.

We see the social and emotional aspects of learning as inextricably linked to academic learning and progress.

Ultimately, we want our children to grow up to be kind and compassionate human beings who contribute to the global society. Our curriculum is broad and inspirational, incorporating the Arts, Sport and a rich co-curricular programme.



I love being a pupil at South Lee and have been here since Nursery. The staff all know me as a unique individual and they understand what I need to do to be the best I can be. 



South Lee has given my child the best possible start in life! Specialist staff use their expertise to enable our children to become the best they can be!



I enjoy teaching here - you can be creative and teach using the most recent innovations in education. Our pupils always amaze me!"
