This represents a significant achievement for Loxford School and exemplifies the dedication of the staff and students.

I have selected some quotes to highlight the key findings:

  • Pupils at Loxford receive an exceptional education. This starts in early years, where strong foundations are built, and continues through to the sixth form..”
  • The school is ambitious for all its pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). The curriculum is well sequenced and carefully thought through. There are very clear links across subjects from the primary into the secondary phases of the school. This supports pupils to build knowledge securely as they move through each year. Students in the sixth form benefit from a wide range of opportunities to develop their academic knowledge and skills
  • Staff have consistently high expectations of pupils’ behaviour. Pupils behave very well in all phases of their education. They are committed to their learning and take pride in their work.
  • The school offers a rich range of wider opportunities. These include clubs, extra support for learning, leadership development programmes and school visits. Students in the sixth form are excellent role models for younger pupils

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support on our journey to maintain the high standards here.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. A. Johnson OBE
