Growing In Faith and Learning

'Growing in Faith and Learning' 'Life in all it's fullness' John 10:10

Welcome to St Leonard's CofE Primary School

I am delighted to welcome you to our website. I am proud to be the Headteacher at St. Leonard’s CofE Primary & Nursery School. We are located in the beautiful village of Wigginton and have a very strong community who are keen to support our school. Our strong Christian ethos underpins everything we do and everyone associated with our school is committed to helping our children ‘Grow in Faith and Learning’. Catherine Young- Headteacher.


Welcome to St. Leonard's Church of England Primary School


We always encourage families to arrange a school tour before making a decision on which school they choose for their child's Education. We usually operate an open morning/afternoon so that you can come on a tour, meet with Mrs. Young- our headteacher and have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. 


This year, like everything in our world at the moment, this is more challenging.  If you would like to visit our school, please call the school office to arrange an appointment. The school tour will be brief so that we can protect our pupils and we ask all visitors to wear a mask throughout the visit. Subject to fine weather, a more in-depth conversation with the Headteacher can take place outdoors at the end of the tour. 


The application process for a Reception place for September 2022 will open on 1st November 2021. The easiest way to apply is online at


If you are applying for a 'Foundation' place (see admissions policy for more detail) you also need to complete the application form in our admissions policy. 


The closing date for Reception applications is 15th January. 


Nursery applications are accepted throughout the year using the application form in our admissions policy. The cut off for Nursery applications for a September intake is 4th March. 


Please also feel free to contact us via email or telephone if you have any questions.
