Our Vision

Lorton School aims to have high standards of personal and social development leading to high standards of academic achievement, whilst adopting a child centred approach to learning in a caring family atmosphere.

Ofsted, 2013

'Teaching is typically good and some is outstanding.  Staff have high expectations and use an effective range of methods to interest and motivate pupils.  Pupils are provided with creative ways of learning and have regular opportunities to improve their skills through activities linked to science, art, music and technology.  School leaders work closely with parents, involving them in the learning and progress of their children.  The behaviour of pupils in lessons and around the school is exemplary.  Pupils are confident, kind to each other, and respectful to their teachers and other members of staff.'
