Our vision

Aim, Aspire, Achieve

Lavington: Learning for Life

Lavington School; where students are happy, healthy and safe and achieve more than they thought possible, at school and beyond.

At Lavington School we pride ourselves on providing a secure, stable and well-ordered environment based on high educational standards and genuine care and concern for individuals. We work with all students, whatever their ability, to help them achieve their potential.  We aim for students to leave Lavington School as aspirational, confident young people, ready to take on new challenges and have a lifelong love of learning.  Our students will have resilience and resourcefulness and the wisdom to treat others with respect and courtesy, and this forms the foundation of our ethos.

Well-being

We ensure our students have the knowledge and confidence to make positive, safe and aspirational decisions about their lives whilst at school and for their futures.

Learning

We ensure that our students are active and independent learners, who strive to achieve their best in every learning situation, and will continue to do so throughout their lives.

Skills

We ensure that students are highly literate and numerate, able to apply their skills and knowledge to new and different situations, to achieve well in school and beyond.

Progress

We ensure that students fulfil their potential, and are fully prepared and qualified to leave school and move onto the next stage of their lives.

We are proud of our achievements at Lavington School, but there is always more we can do. By working together, we can shape a positive and successful future for our young people.

We are immensely proud of all of our students and their achievements through their time with us. We place a strong emphasis on the holistic development of each child as a valued individual.  We provide a positive, challenging and exciting learning environment in which children flourish.  Academic achievement is high, but there is much more to life at Lavington School. We are well known for our successes in sports and outdoor pursuits as well as excelling in art, technology, music and drama. Many students are involved in charitable work and community projects both within school and the wider community.

Our Values

At the heart of this success are the core values that the whole school community believe are important:

•           Excellent teaching by experienced, specialist teachers

•           Individual care through an excellent pastoral system

•           High levels of achievement through a challenging academic curriculum chosen to give students the best life chances

•           Innovation in all aspects of education

•           Traditional values of behaviour, appearance and conduct

•           Developing personal leadership through a wide programme of extra-curricular activities.

At Lavington, we believe that every member of staff contributes to the development of your son or daughter. Whatever their role, we expect all staff to support your child, challenge them to excel and celebrate their achievements. It is only through close partnership between students, their families and school staff that we can make your child’s dreams a reality.
