Brine Leas School is an academy school in Nantwich, Cheshire, UK. The school has 1,287 pupils enrolled,[2] and has technology and language, status.[3]

The school opened in 1977 as a comprehensive co-educational establishment. The first head teacher was Daphne Howard; on her retirement Michael Butler became head teacher. Andrew Cliffe became the school's third head teacher in September, 2007. In September, 2010, the school became one of just 32 to take up academy status. In 2011, the school received a capital grant of over £1 to improve facilities around the site. The school operates a house system, with every pupil and staff member in either "Audley", "Lovell", or "Warwick". For the last ten years the school has been oversubscribed although it does continue to take pupils on distance criteria.

The 2008 Ofsted inspection outlined the school as having outstanding overall effectiveness, with constantly exceptional pupil achievement.[4] Since the school was inspected results have improved yet further with headlines for five A*to C including English and maths consistently being around 70%.

The school opened a sixth form in September, 2010.[5] In 2016 the school became part of the Brine Multi Academy Trust.
