Welcome from the Headteacher
I am delighted to welcome you to Loxford School All-Through School.
We are an outstanding school, delivering high-quality education for each one of our students from 3 – 18. At Loxford School we aim to prepare young people for an ever-changing world that values self-confident, well-educated and enterprising people.
It is a privilege to lead this successful and happy school and to work in partnership with such enthusiastic children, committed staff and supportive parents and governors. We are proud of our consistently high performance in public examinations. We also offer a wide range of enrichment activities to support and engage our local community.
Building on our past successes, we continue to seek new challenges and opportunities to help children fulfil their potential, both academically and socially, so that they leave us with the widest range of choices in a challenging society. We want every child to feel part of the school community. Our primary provision includes specialist staff, separate buildings and dedicated play areas. The students will remain with us throughout their school career, making lifelong friendships and moving smoothly from one phase to the next.
To achieve this aim, we provide an education that meets the needs of young people, delivered in an educational environment that emphasises traditional standards of uniform, discipline and respect.
Loxford School has been officially recognised by the government as a High Performing School and judged to be an Outstanding school in our most recent Ofsted inspection in April 2013. This inspection found the school to be outstanding in every one of the inspection measures – one of the few schools in the country to achieve a ‘perfect’ Ofsted inspection.
Everything we do at Loxford School is centred on ensuring that each individual student is educated and supported to succeed in the world today – as an individual, as a partner, as a member of a team and as a citizen. With excellent facilities and high-quality teaching, the students at Loxford School are happy, challenged and motivated. The School is committed to the success of each of our students.
