About Colne Lord Street School

The Pennine Trust is a relatively new, vibrant, cross phase multi-academy trust which has been jointly established by three primary schools and one secondary school. The Trust has evolved from the successful collaboration between four schools with shared family values. The core values which embody the ethos of the schools are: Innovate; Inspire; Include.
Lord Street is a founding member of the Trust and has a long standing tradition of serving the community in the heart of Colne. The school’s family ethos provides a nurturing environment enabling children of all abilities to flourish. There is a dedicated and supportive staff team, who are committed to further improving the opportunities for children in their care. Pupils are proud of their school, enjoy their experiences and exhibit good behaviour and attitudes to learning.
The most recent Ofsted inspection, prior to academisation, judged Lord Street to be good in all areas. More recently, the staff have been developing new innovative approaches to teaching and learning, which are now beginning to have a notable impact on the progress of pupils at the school. Another notable development has been the creation of a forest school, which has considerable further potential.
