Two sites, one school, one head teacher, working to unite the community.



Welcome to our school website – I hope that you enjoy finding out all about Leopold Primary School and that it gives you an insight into the ethos of our school.

We are a large primary school in Brent and serve a very diverse community, with over 32 different first languages spoken by our children and families.

We are situated over two sites, one on Hawkshead Road, NW10 9UR and one on Brentfield Road, NW10 8HE.

There are currently 700 pupils attending the school. Leopold Hawkshead has 460 pupils from Nursery to Year 6. Leopold Gwenneth Rickus currently has 240 pupils from Reception to Year 4.

Our future aim is to strengthen the community even further by providing nursery education at the Gwenneth Rickus site.


We pride ourselves on our warm, caring ethos and have a strong reputation for this and for the way in which we celebrate every child’s uniqueness. We have high expectations for all our children in terms of their work and behaviour, offering both challenge and support, to enable them to achieve their very best.

We need to promote the drive for excellence in modern British society. The news everywhere is currently discussing austerity however we need to promote prosperity through outstanding education.

Our aim is to provide children with rich and memorable learning experiences, in an ever-changing world and to foster a love of learning, so that our children become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.  We are very proud of our school, of the pupils, the parents, grandparents and extended families . Because of your commitment and trust in the school, we continue to grow in numbers and in strength. We are also proud of our community cohesion links, our strong PTFA and our governors.

We continue our commitment for high standards and to an inclusive ethos. I am very proud to serve as its head teacher.

You are welcome to contact us if you wish to find out any more about the school or to arrange a visit.

Kind Regards,

Mrs A.B. Kendall
