Senior school is an exciting time in the educational journey. It is a time of change, self-discovery and new challenges. Our students are creatively inspired, academically stretched and individually supported to fully explore and understand who they are and what they can achieve.
Visitors often comment that our School atmosphere is unique. We believe this comes from being an all-through school, Our character and school spirit is welcoming, familiar and refreshingly down-to-earth. With around 600 pupils from Years 7 to 13 in our Senior School, it is the ideal size; small enough that all pupils are known and valued as individuals, but large enough to offer fantastic facilities, a wide-ranging academic curriculum and extensive learning experiences and opportunities beyond the classroom.
Our campus truly reflects our ethos; a school of traditional foundations, but with our eyes set firmly on the future. In beautiful grounds sits the stunning Le Clerc building, positioned comfortably alongside our modern classrooms, sports facilities and dedicated performing arts buildings. It is an inspirational place to learn each day.
A wonderful school that provides so many great opportunities. Not just academically but in sport, drama, music and all the other extra-curricular activities on offer. The staff are fantastic and the pastoral care is great. Our children have gained so much more confidence since starting Lingfield but most importantly they are very happy.
