At Laxton Junior School, we quite simply have our children and their learning at the centre of all that we do and, as such, we aim to provide them with an education of the highest standard possible. In a caring and supportive environment, all children become exceptional, lifelong learners, who confidently embrace the wide-ranging opportunities that we offer and are able to face challenges with determination and resilience.

We believe that all learning opportunities should be challenging, inspiring and engaging and, through our talented and passionate staff, we ensure this contributes to fantastic progress and results being achieved by our children; which, in turn, leads to a smooth transition into their chosen senior school at 11+. As a non-selective school, the personalised learning programmes that we have in place ensure that all our children, from those with specific learning needs to those working beyond age-related expectations, receive the perfect balance of support and challenge, alongside that all-important sense of fun and enjoyment that must go hand in hand with learning.

Whilst the academic standards of our children are very high indeed, we wholeheartedly believe that the development of each child is about more than their achievements in the classroom. Through a commitment to digital literacy, excursions, educational visitors, extra-curricular activities, sporting fixtures, music tuition and dramatic performances, an education at Laxton Junior School offers an inspiring array of opportunity.

Our children develop into confident individuals who are extremely respectful and courteous; they have the necessary independence to thrive in senior school education whilst being hugely sociable with excellent communication and teamwork skills. From Reception to Year Six, our children are impressive, ever excited about engaging with the education we offer and determined to make the most of every opportunity.

So, whether you are an existing member of our community or a prospective parent, I hope that the information contained herein gives you a great taste of all that Laxton Junior School has to offer; indeed, we are so proud of our school and the positive impact it has on the lives of our community. If you are a prospective parent and are impressed with what you have discovered in these pages, please do contact us. Indeed, we would love to hear from you and it would be my absolute pleasure to give you a tour of our excellent school and discuss all that we could offer both you and your child; I am convinced that the experience will be one that leaves a lasting impression.
