Lorton School continues to be 'Good' at their latest Ofsted inspection!

Everyone at the Trust is thrilled by the result of Lorton's recent inspection. The school had been expecting to get 'the call' for some time and were well prepared for the arrival of the Inspectors in February. The excellent report highlights how happy the children are at school as well as how supportive the school community is of the school's ethos and approach. 

Headteacher Olivia Harrison said: “We are delighted that Ofsted has recognised and praised the ethos that we have made central to everything we do at Lorton. Mrs Harrison continued: “Children's happiness comes first and a love of learning follows on and that means they reach their academic potential. We protect our children from the external pressures that are being placed upon primary schools and still equip them for the next stage of their education – something which was recognised by Ofsted. I am proud to be a part of such a fantastic team.”

Trust CEO Claire Render said: 'We are delighted with the recent OFSTED report from Lorton School. It celebrates the whole life of the school from climbing Skiddaw to the scientific knowledge of the pupils. I'm pleased that it recognises the high expectations from all leaders at Lorton school. I know how hard staff, parents and the Local Governing Body have worked to ensure that Lorton provides a fantastic education for all pupils.'
