About us

Overdale Junior School is a multicultural academy school in the Local Authority of Leicester, and is a friendly and welcoming place where we promote creativity and the enjoyment of learning.

We are situated on the southern edge of the city of Leicester in a mainly residential area. Our school campus is shared with Overdale Infant School, with which there is increasingly close liaison.

The school was opened in September 1956, with a new extension added in 2009. We have 16 mixed ability classes across Years 3 to 6 and the children develop strong relationships with the teachers and peers through their learning and extracurricular activities.

We are fortunate to have a great deal of outside space at the school, including all weather playgrounds, a sports field and a wooded area and we are an established Forest School to make even more use of the green space around the school for learning opportunities.
