Some of the schools in Central Bedfordshire work together as local clusters or communities. Learning Community 2 schools are in Leighton Buzzard, Woburn and the surrounding villages. We are comprised of two upper schools, five middle schools, nineteen lower schools and one school for children with special needs.
We meet regularly together to discuss key issues, facilitate training and encourage co-operative working across the three tiers of schools.
Leighton Middle School has belonged to the national organisation, Challenge Partners since 2013. Our school has an external audit to challenge us and support our improvement. Staff from our school carry out audits on behalf of Challenge Partners.
Challenge Partners provides many opportunities for training for our staff.
