St. Leonards Church, Yardley Gobion
St. Leonard’s Church, part of the South Cleley Benefice, is in the heart of the village and plays an important part in school life. Reverend Diane is a regular visitor at school, leading collective worship or supporting RE teaching. We are also lucky enough to receive support from of many of the congregation at various events and occasions.
The church is also used by us for all our major festival celebrations. Harvest, Christmas and Easter are highlights of our school calendar.
We love our involvement with St. Leonard’s and the congregation warmly welcomes the children.
