    The nine­teenth cen­tury saw the found­ing of a large num­ber of new schools in Britain, es­pe­cially by the churches—in­clud­ing the Wes­leyan Methodist Church. Al­though there were al­ready sev­eral lead­ing schools that of­fered an ed­u­ca­tion for the sons of Min­is­ters of the church, some Methodists were ask­ing also for schools to be es­tab­lished for sons of lay church mem­bers. The Methodist Con­fer­ence set up a com­mit­tee to look at the pos­si­bil­ity of start­ing a new school at ei­ther Ox­ford or Cam­bridge. Fol­low­ing sev­eral vis­its to Cam­bridge, they dis­cov­ered that a twenty-acre (80,000 m2) site called "The Leys Es­tate" was being of­fered for sale. The es­tate was sit­u­ated within easy reach of the city cen­tre on the Trump­ing­ton Road, and it was close to the River Cam and to a num­ber of Cam­bridge Col­leges. The es­tate was ac­quired for the sum of £14,275 on 27 Sep­tem­ber 1872. The Rev­erend Doc­tor W. F. Moul­ton, who had been the sec­re­tary of the c...

    De­spite its Methodist tra­di­tions it has, for more than fifty years, been lib­eral on re­li­gion (al­though never sec­u­lar). Many pupils re­ceived con­fir­ma­tion into the Church of Eng­land in the school chapel, and some oth­ers have had re­li­gious back­grounds from faiths other than the Chris­tian­ity. De­spite its re­li­gious lib­er­al­ism, The Leys is pre­dom­i­nantly a Chris­t­ian school and they state openly that "The School’s Chris­t­ian ethos lies at the heart of our ed­u­ca­tion phi­los­o­phy." Pupils at­tend chapel ser­vices twice a week; a week­day ser­vice on a Fri­day af­ter­noon plus Sun­day ser­vices with the whole board­ing com­mu­nity on a monthly basis with a weekly ser­vice with just their House on an­other spec­i­fied day of the week. In ad­di­tion, Holy Com­mu­niontakes place once a term. The school motto is "In Fide Fiducia" (Latin for "In Faith, Trust"), which is also the motto for its as­so­ci­ated prep school, St Faith's School. The two schools make up T...

    The set­ting for pop­u­lar novel and play Good­bye, Mr. Chips is be­lieved to have been based on The Leys where au­thor James Hilton was a pupil (1915–1918). Hilton is re­ported to have said that the in­spi­ra­tion for the pro­tag­o­nist, Chips, came chiefly from W.H. Bal­gar­nie, one of the mas­ters at The Leys (1900–30) who was in charge of the Leys Fort­nightly (where Hilton's first short sto­ries and es­says were pub­lished). Over the years old boys have writ­ten to Ge­of­fery Houghton, a mas­ter of The Leys for a num­ber of years and a his­to­rian of the school, con­firm­ing the links be­tween Chips and Bal­gar­nie. As with Mr. Chips, Bal­gar­nie died at the school, at the age of 82, hav­ing been linked with the school for 51 years and liv­ing his last years in mod­est lodg­ings op­po­site the school. Again, like Mr. Chips, Bal­gar­nie was a strict dis­ci­pli­nar­ian, but would also in­vite boys to visit him for tea and bis­cuits. Hilton wrote, upon Bal­gar­nie's death that "Ba...

    The Memo­r­ial Chapel of The Leys is sit­u­ated on the grounds of the school. It was built as a memo­r­ial to the first head­mas­ter of The Leys, William Fid­dian Moul­ton. Plans for the chapel, de­signed by ar­chi­tect Robert Cur­wen, were first pre­sented to the school's sec­ond head­mas­ter, W. T. A. Bar­ber; he deemed the pro­ject an un­nec­es­sary lux­ury. Ser­vices were held in the school hall until 1904 when the gov­er­nors ap­proved the chapel's con­struc­tion. The cost, in­clud­ing all fur­nish­ings, was es­ti­mated in 1925 to have been £39,000. The foun­da­tion stone was laid at the mar­ble West Door by Princess He­lena of Waldeck and Pyr­mont on 8 June 1905 and the chapel was con­se­crated on 27 Oc­to­ber 1906. The build­ing's de­sign is Gothic, to com­ple­ment the sur­round­ing build­ings. All vis­i­ble wood­work is in oak. The roof com­prises elab­o­rately worked tussels[clarification needed] and trac­ery work, some­what after the lines of the fa­mous roof of West­min­s...

    The Scot­tish com­mu­nity at the school set up the 'The Leys This­tle' in Oc­to­ber 1915 in order to unite Scot­tish fam­i­lies while they were away from Scot­land. The 'This­tle' was cre­ated by Scot­tish mem­bers of North 'A'. Fol­low­ing the first meet­ing on Hal­loween 1915, the 'rush to join was tremendous' and many ap­pli­cants were said to have lied about Scot­tish her­itage to get into the club, such was the de­mand. The pub­li­ca­tion of the so­ci­ety was called the 'Leys This­tle' and the first pub­li­ca­tion was in March 1917. The motto of the club is Nemo Me Im­pune La­ces­sitor 'no one touches me with im­punity'. The first pub­li­ca­tion of the 'The Leys This­tle' states that the club had only three rules: 1. 'That we, a brotherhood of fellows, united with each other to help and do anything can do to live up to the glorious traditions of Scotland.' 2. 'To be an influence for good in the School: although we can't do much, still we can live decent and clean sportsmen's li...

    The Memorial Chapel of The Leys is situated on the grounds of The Leys School, Cambridge, England. It was built as a memorial to the first headmaster of The Leys, William Fiddian Moulton. Plans for the chapel, designed by architect Robert Curwen, were first presented to the school's second headmaster, W. T. A. Barber; he deemed the project an unnecessary luxury. School services continued to be held instead in the school hall, until 1904 when the school governors approved the chapel's constructio

    In 1914, 927 Leysians joined the armed services and 146 of them died in the First World War. A memorial to the old Leysians who died, costing £48,000 and funded by donation, was on 6 June 1920 unveiled by the Duke of York, later King George VI. The memorial consists of four rows of names divided in the middle by a statue of an armoured St George, below which is written "To The Immortal Memory of Old Leysians Who Fell In The War Of 1914–1919", and in large block capitals the words "My ...

    The chapel has fourteen windows; the Governors commissioned H. J. Salisbury to decorate them all according to a unified theme. The work was modelled on the windows of the King's College Chapel, Cambridge. Because The Leys is a Methodist school, the work was required to be simple and avoid complex symbolism. All but one of the windows depicts passages from the New Testament concerning the story of Christ; the large window over the main entrance instead shows ten Old Testament subjects forecasting

    The pulpit is made of oak and has a brass inscription reading "To the Glory of God and for the Preaching of His holy word this Pulpit was carved by Anne Hobson, Helen Mary Chubb, and George Hayter Chubb, and presented by the latter to The Leys, October, 1906."

    There are thirty-two oak benches in the chapel, thirty with square ends and two with sloping ends.

    În secolul al XIX-lea au fost înființat un mare număr de școli noi în Marea Britanie, mai ales de către biserici — inclusiv Biserica Metodistă Wesleyană. Deși existau deja mai multe școli care ofereau o bună educație pentru fiii clericilor acestei biserici, unii metodiști au cerut, de asemenea, să fie înființate școli pentru credincioșii laici ai bisericii. Conferința Metodistă a fondat un comitet care să analizeze posibilitatea de a organiza o școală nouă la Oxford sau la Cambridge. După mai multe vizite la Cambridge, membrii comitetului au aflat că un teren de 20 de acri (80.000 m2) numit „The Leys Estate” era oferit spre vânzare. Terenul era situat pe Trumpington Road, la mică distanță de centrul orașului, și se afla în apropierea râului Cam și a câtorva colegii ale Universității Cambridge. Proprietatea a fost achiziționată pentru suma de 14.275 £ pe 27 septembrie 1872. Reverendul dr. W. F. Moulton, care era secretarul comitetului, a fost numit directorulșcolii nou-înființate. Șc...
