Together Everyone Achieves More

Welcome from our Headteacher.

It is with great pleasure, as Headteacher at Larks Hill, that I welcome you to our website.

Our school ethos is based on the notion of mutual respect and we encourage children at Larks Hill to demonstrate a strong respect for learning and all members of the school community. I have high expectations for the children’s learning, their behaviour and personal presentation. Equally, our staff demonstrate their respect for the children by delivering high quality lessons and experiences, treating them all as individuals with differing needs.

I hope that you enjoy our website and that it gives you a sense of our school, its worth and its aspirations.

Best wishes,

Mrs K Adams
