“…improving the quality of teaching, learning and assessment is at the very heart of the work of the school. You have created a clear vision of teaching and learning that is based on two pillars: firstly, that teachers must ensure the tasks they set accurately meet the needs of their pupils. Secondly, that pupils understand what they need to do to improve their work”.

Parents, Carers and Community Comments

I just wanted to take this opportunity, now that we’ve settled into the new term, to thank you for all your hard work and enthusiasm in putting together the Lakes trip. Our son had such a wonderful time and has benefitted in so many ways, we can’t thank you enough. The positive impact this has had for our children is incalculable.

We are really happy with how our daughter has settled into St Laurence and there seems to be so many opportunities for her.

We have had so many positive experiences from the school and our interactions with the staff have been really uplifting with the energy and enthusiasm shown being really positive.

It is indeed an indication of your genuine compassion, commitment and care for your pupils, more powerful to parents than any Ofsted judgment.

We value her education of course and know how much time and effort staff go to to deliver  this to our children, but it is the extras that give an average student the chance to shine and she feels she has had that chance – and so do we.

There are not many schools who go above and beyond in terms of individual support but your staff have been superb.

We are forever grateful for everything that your school has offered to our daughter and always highly recommend St Laurence to anyone asks our opinion on Secondary Schools in the area.
