At Laleham Lea, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum, concentrating not only on the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science but also on Religious Education, Spanish, History, Geography, Music and Drama, Computing, Design and Technology, Games and Art. A  Foreign Language is also studied from Nursery to Year 6.

Religious Education at Laleham Lea is at the heart of the curriculum, enriching and informing all other areas of learning.  Assemblies are held twice each week and we either celebrate Mass or attend Liturgy each Wednesday.

Great emphasis is placed on Music. Instrumental concerts are held throughout the year allowing children to perform publicly, both individually and as members of a group. From Nursery to Year 6 children are encouraged to sing and to make music and a variety of musical instruments are taught by our many Peri Music Teachers.

Sport also plays an important part in the curriculum. Sports on offer at Laleham Lea include Rugby, Football, Netball, Swimming, Tennis, Table Tennis, Hockey, Cross Country, Athletics, Cricket, Baseball, Basketball, Gymnastics and Ballet. Both boys and girls compete successfully against other schools in many of the above sports.

Laleham Lea offers a variety of specialist Lunchtime and After School Clubs to support and enhance our Curriculum. Our timetable includes something for all interests from Music and Sports to Debating and Art. A full list of current Extra Curricular activities is available here.
