About Lawrence Sheriff School

‘The values on which all of the school’s work is based are very clear. You believe that students should be happy at the school’ (Ofsted, 2013).

Lawrence Sheriff School is a boys’ grammar school with a co-education sixthform. We have approximately 1000 students, over 300 of whom are in the sixth form. We believe that much of our success - including our consistently high Ofsted grading and our high rankings in DFE performance tables - can be directly linked to our emphasis upon LSS being a happy place to work for both pupils and staff.

The 2013 Ofsted report goes on to say that ‘the school is a harmonious community where students with different needs can thrive; achieve highly in their academic work and enjoy a wide range of enrichment opportunities.’ These comments sum up the distinctive ethos and values of the school.
