About Us

Achieving Excellence Together

Aylestone School is federated with two of our feeder primary schools, Broadlands and Withington. All three schools are led by one Executive Headteacher. Many of our staff work across the three schools therefore building strong relationships with parents and children from an early age. This experience puts Aylestone in a strong position with regards to transition for children from any of the primary schools.

Aylestone is an oversubscribed, thriving, collaborative and caring school with high aspirations for all students. Parents who choose Aylestone have entrusted us with one of the most important and rewarding jobs in the world – that of the welfare and progress of your child. We take this responsibility very seriously.

We pride ourselves on being able to offer something different in the city. We are a smaller school, but big enough to offer the breadth of choice and opportunities that other schools do. We know all our children and have a school ethos based on mutual respect.

We are immensely proud of all of our students and their achievements through their time with us. We place a strong emphasis on the holistic development of each child as a valued individual. We provide a positive, challenging and exciting learning environment in which children flourish. We pride ourselves on relationships in the school. Children & staff are welcoming & friendly. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum and are immensely proud of successes in many areas. Our extra-curricular offer is wide and varied and many students are involved in charitable work and community projects both within school and the wider community.
