School Announcements

I would like to inform you all of the outcome, of a very extensive Headteacher interview process.

I am delighted to inform you that our previous Deputy Headteacher & more recently Head of Fitzharrys School, Jonathan Dennett has been appointed as the new Head of Larkmead School.

I wish him all the very best, and feel confident that the school will be in great hands.
Mr Harris | Headteacher


As you explore the Larkmead website, you’ll discover that ours is a school community unlike any other. A carefully fostered, ordered community where each individual is encouraged to take advantage of the exceptional range of opportunities offered to them, both inside and outside of the classroom.

Progress at Larkmead over the past few years has been phenomenal. At a time when national attainment levels have fallen, ours have increased. Not just by 1% or 2%, but sometimes as much as 10%. This is no fluke. This has happened because of the continued monitoring and commitment by students, teachers and parents to ‘get it right’ for our students.

But Larkmead is not just about results. We enable all students to make appropriate progress but we make sure that their experience along the way is broad, exciting and challenging.

We believe that everyone can achieve. We value diversity and want every student to realise their potential and to recognise that their potential has no limit. We create positive learning spaces, where students and teachers learn together: each challenging the other to get better and better at what they do; each having a voice and being actively supported in the running and decision making of the school.
It is no coincidence then that our students are proud to be Larkmead students or that our existing parents are happy to recommend us to others.

There is confidence that we can inspire and enable a child to achieve, irrespective of background or individual challenges.

This is the uniqueness that is Larkmead School.

But don’t take our word for it, come along and see for yourself, we’d love to meet you.

Some more pictures from the Ski Trip.


Well that’s the 2020 ski trip all back safe and sound, a big thank you to Mr Williams for organizing a fantastic ski trip, thanks also to Mrs Williams, Mr Hiorns,Miss Hawton and Mr Barber, finally thank you to all the students who were a real credit to the Larkmead community.


Day 3 and it’s started to snow, hoping for a lot to cover the icy areas. All students ventured further within the ski resort, the improvement in skiing ability has allowed them try out the trickier runs. Mr B showing off his skills (limited).

Day 3 lunch, big ski group and lots of pommes.
