Emergency Operation of School in Bad Weather

In the event of severe weather every effort will be made to leave the school open to allow students or staff who can safely get into school do to so – it is emphasised that it is each person’s responsibility, staff or parent, to decide what is safe.

Any decision to close the school due to bad weather or any other emergency will be broadcast on BBC Radio Oxford (95.2FM), Heart FM (102.6FM) and Jack FM (106.8FM). If particular buses are unable to run, we will try to arrange for that to be broadcast as well.

Updates will also be provided via this website



Welcome to Larkmead School where students achieve success through a carefully fostered community. We are proud of the well ordered nature of our community where students are encouraged to take advantage of an exceptional range of opportunities both in and outside of the classroom, and to contribute actively to the running and decision making of the school. Our vision statement talks of students “exceeding their expectations”. This refers to all aspects of their lives, academically and beyond.

The most meaningful measure of the quality of teaching and learning at a school is the amount of progress it allows and encourages students to make. Progress at Larkmead is exceptional. We are a “learning community” that has, at its heart, a clear set of values. Through these values we work with our students, preparing them for a challenging and exciting future refusing to accept limitations to their ambition.

Chris Harris – Headteacher
