At The Latimer Arts College, we are a community that genuinely respects and cares for each other. Together, we are committed to ensuring that everyone in our school is happy, feels safe and is valued. We are over-subscribed, with 1200 students aged 11-18 who are nurtured and guided through their education in a purposeful and caring community ethos based on respect for all.

With our students at the heart of all that we do, we encourage each member of the community to uphold both our core values of Honesty, Excellence, Ambition, Respect and Teamwork and encourage the development of the core characteristics of Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative & Communication, ensuring students leave with the skills required for employment and future success. We also model the fundamental British values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs. We aim to make a positive contribution to both our local community and wider society.

We have a passionate belief in the value of a well-rounded education and it is our intention to unlock the true potential within each and every individual, whatever that may be. We work collectively to motivate our students to place no boundaries on their ambitions, no limits on their aspirations and remove any barriers to their achievement. Through our high expectations we want to inspire our students to achieve excellence and be the best that they can be.

Our staff are one of the secrets of our success and so we are fully committed to their wellbeing and professional development.

We seek to appoint staff who thrive on collaboration, innovation and a desire to be amazing: colleagues who will have a passion for improving student achievement and personal development and be bursting with ideas as to how to achieve this. It is our job to nurture you to deliver this success.

We have a highly successful induction programme for new staff, including an ECT programme, and we offer an extensive range of training throughout this.

We are committed to the DfE Education Staff Wellbeing Charter and have a varied programme of activities and support in place for our staff. This is responsive and evolves annually based on context and needs, with our staff voice being instrumental in shaping what we provide.

We are passionate about supporting professional development so that we can ensure we are equipping our staff team with the skills, knowledge and understanding that they need to not only fulfil their roles but most importantly to be fulfilled by their roles. We endeavour to support staff who wish to study for Masters Degrees and other professional qualifications.

Our Facilities

Ensuring that our staff and students can thrive in a positive learning environment is one of our key priorities. Each learning area is well-equipped with the specialist resources that individual subjects require.

Significant investment has been made in the site in recent years which means that we are the proud owners of a state of the art Science Learning Centre, a multi-use Sports Centre and a 4G all-weather pitch. In addition to this we have our own Masque theatre.

We continue to invest and innovate to improve the learning environment for all. The Latimer Arts College provides an excellent environment to both teach and learn in.

Not only do these provide great facilities during the school day, but they are also available for free for staff and students to use post-school. This helps to add to our strong community ethos.
