St. Swithun's Church
Leonard Stanley C of E Primary School is very fortunate to have St. Swithun's Church in Leonard Stanley situated a short walk from the school. The school uses the church for worship, celebrations and learning.
The church also runs free quarterly craft and activity sessions on a Saturday afternoon for pre-school and school children. These are organised and run by a dedicated team of volunteers. The details for which are sent home in your child's book bags a few weeks before the planned event. When you receive your form just fill out some contact details and return into school/Early Years.
