What the school offers its staff

At St Laurence School we regard our staff as our most important resource. Our 2014 Investors in People report noted that:

There is a strong belief that St Laurence School is a ‘great place to work’. Everyone clearly has a high level of pride in working at the school and in what is being achieved. They feel this way because of the inspirational leadership, strong teamwork, supportive management, pleasant environment and of course, the students.

In the Modern Foreign Languages department, you will find a cohesive team of staff whose vision and practice promotes curiosity and diversity; we value and celebrate difference by exploring cultures inside and outside the classroom “from every nation, tribe and tongue” (Rev 7.9). By valuing the contributions of all individuals, we ensure there are equal opportunities for staff and students to express and appreciate a range of viewpoints. The Head of Department is supported by one TLR post-holder. There are eight members of the team, and a mix of full and part time members.

St Laurence is an 11-18 co-educational comprehensive Church academy situated in the market town of Bradford on Avon. The school dates back to 1980 when Fitzmaurice Grammar School merged with Trinity Secondary Modern but preserves its longer-standing heritage through the work of two foundations (Diocese of Salisbury, Fitzmaurice Educational Trust) which are represented on the Governing Body. St Laurence has a strong reputation with a great emphasis placed on social, moral and spiritual development, as well as academic. We have approximately 1420 students on roll with over 250 in our sixth form.
We provide a huge range of extracurricular activities and late buses are provided to encourage students to stay on after school. We are proud of our facilities and the level of expertise our staff display. We have an ongoing programme of investment in buildings and facilities.
Our students come from a variety of social backgrounds and encompass a wide variety of abilities. Relationships with our parents are good and we have a committed PTA known as the SLSA (St Laurence School Association). The local community regards the School highly and gives us considerable support. In turn, the School provides venues and facilities for many community activities and events. Our exam results are good. Student attainment is well above the national average with positive Progress Scores year on year. Our Ofsted in December 2022 deemed us Good and our SIAMS inspection in March 2022 graded us as Excellent in all Areas.
