The Leys was founded in 1875, a time when a large number of schools were founded, especially by the churches. Whilst there were already several leading schools providing an education for the sons of Ministers, Methodists were asking for schools for the sons of lay members.

The Methodist Conference set up a committee to look at the possibility of starting a school at Oxford or Cambridge.
