Welcome to Canon Lee School
I am delighted to welcome you to our school website.
We are extremely proud of our growing reputation for academic excellence and are pleased to report fantastic GCSE headline figures of 66% 5+ A* - C including English and Maths. A massive well done to all those who have helped maintain the huge improvements recently seen at Canon Lee School. 99% of students left with five or more qualifications and every student took home a qualification.
Pupils of all abilities continue to thrive in our challenging yet supportive environment. We encourage ambition and personal excellence and expect high levels of effort and commitment in return.
Excellent academic achievement is important at Canon Lee School but we also pride ourselves on developing confident, articulate and autonomous learners who are able to make positive contribution to society when they leave our care.

Our enrichment and enhancement provision includes opportunities in music, sport, drama and many other areas which many students take advantage of and actively enjoy.
Our commitment to ‘every child really matters’ is an absolute at Canon Lee. We value the unique contributions of all our students and work with parents and carers to ensure that everyone at our school is supported, safe and happy.
Miss C.E. Holbrey BSc (Hons) MA NPQH, Headteacher (September 2013)
