Welcome to the Lawrence Sheriff website
Welcome to Lawrence Sheriff School
Our vision is that we are a happy and successful school, where students know that they matter, that their voice is heard, and that they can and should achieve their very best.
Our ethos is that we put people at the centre of all that we do and we do things the right way. We listen to each other even if we have different points of view, we talk to each other respectfully and we always act considerately.
Our aim is that all students find joy at school and that this leads them to achieve well academically. Our students achieve fantastic exam results through a curriculum that stretches them and is enriched. They are challenged to be Sheriff Learners by being curious, pro-active, resilient, reflective and organised; enabling them to confidently embrace and overcome whatever obstacles they may face.
We are a community that is inclusive and celebrates diversity, and has the highest of expectations for behaviour and how we treat each other. Our Student Council sums this up beautifully in the statement: ‘Fairness, Inclusivity, Respect - present in your mind, present in your actions.’
Our pupils leave Lawrence Sheriff School as curious thinkers who have the confidence, skills and sense of social responsibility to make a positive contribution to the communities they join.
Please take the time to explore our website and learn more about our happy and successful school.
