About Sir John Lawes School

Visions and Values
The shared values of the school community are summed up in the Sir John Lawes ACE:

The ACE underpins everything that we do and provides a secure basis for all we strive to accomplish.

Achievement in academic, artistic, sporting, cultural and other forms with a focus on teaching and learning.
Care for students, staff and others beyond the school community.
Excellent standards, manners, honesty, personal integrity and uniform.
Our vision for the school is to produce responsible young people of whom we can all be proud, who have achieved more than they ever believed possible and who are prepared to make a contribution to their local, national and global communities.

There is so much more that marks out the SJL community as a place in which each individual can receive the support and challenge they need to help them thrive, and a website can only give you a glimpse. We are all immensely proud of the work we do here so if you like what you see in the following pages and would like to learn more, please do visit us and experience the SJL ACE for yourself.
