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

About Us

Exam results have regularly been in the top 5% nationally and OFSTED judged the school to remain ‘good’ in November 2017, recognising many considerable strengths of the school.

Important as academic achievement is, there is much more to life at Lavington School.  We are passionate about pupils’ personal development, and encourage them to take on leadership responsibilities, and, as a result, pupils are self-assured and self-confident. We are renowned for our successes in sports and outdoor pursuits as well as excelling in art, music and drama. Many students are involved in charitable work and community projects, both within school, and the wider community.

We are proud of our achievements at Lavington School, but there is always more we can do. By working together, we can shape a future for our young people in which they achieve more than they dreamed possible.

 Lavington School is identified as being one of the most successful schools in the South West region. At the heart of this success are the core values that I, and 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 enrichment activities.
