It has been 15 months since we began taking in children at Leopold Gwenneth Rickus. We would like to thank the parents for their understanding whilst works continue to take place. We are currently dividing up areas of the building for the provision of even more additional classrooms. The preparation for these works has begun and the rooms will finished by September 2015. All other building works will end by April 2016, two years to the month that the building opened.
“Two sites, one school, one head teacher, working to unite the community.”
Traffic news 09/10/15:
Roads in and around Neasden and Wembley will be busier than usual; delays are expected between Hanger Lane and Brent Cross. Buses in the area may be delayed, diverted or stop short of their normal destination.

Between October 2015 – spring 2016, major works will be taking place on the A406 North Circular Road at Neasden, between Wembley and Brent Cross. This is to repair bridges and improve the junction at Brentfield Road.
This may affect your journey when picking up and dropping off your children to both Leopold schools. Please make extra time when planning your journey.
TERMLY MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD TEACHER
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 742 pupils attending the school. Leopold Hawkshead has 460 pupils from Nursery to Year 6. Leopold Gwenneth Rickus currently has 282 pupils from Reception to Year 5. 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.
