What the school says...

Nestled in stunning grounds of over 52 acres, Lambrook School boasts 150 years of academic excellence and outstanding opportunities for its pupils. The Lambrook experience combines first class teaching and excellent facilities with traditional values, in the idyllic, tranquil surroundings of the beautiful Berkshire countryside.

By far, our most important asset is our children. From 1860 to the present day we have been nurturing boys and girls, ensuring that they enter senior school life as confident, outgoing, intelligent and creative young people.

We pride ourselves on our high academic standards, superb facilities and sporting provision. Our boarding is fun, friendly and flexible, with a real family atmosphere, yet not compulsory.

Lambrook gives your child the best possible foundations for senior school and beyond. The development of each individual child is at the heart of everything we do, allowing them to grow and thrive in a stimulating, challenging and rewarding environment.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Since 2010, Mr Jonathan Perry, previously head of Kingsmead School in Hoylake. Wife Jenny is a clinical pharmacist who works part-time at a nearby hospital but also has a pastoral role at the school. She has an eye for interior decoration too: the fresh flowers front of house and general spruced up air are thanks to her. The Perrys' son and daughter attended the school (have since progressed to Wellington and Downe House) and were described by one parent as ‘a perfect fit’. Mr...

Special Education Needs

We aim to provide each child with every opportunity to develop their potential, taking into account their different learning profiles, abilities and interests (including gifted and talented pupils). Seven suitably qualified teachers, who can assess and teach throughout the age ranges, provide comprehensive individual programmes for those with special learning needs. We apply a whole school policy to meet each pupil’s individual needs following the guidelines of the Code of Practice for SEN. We aim to identify at the earliest opportunity any child who may have Special Educational Needs and to maintain a Special Needs Register. The Learning Development Centre has been well established within the framework of the school. It is expected that pupils attending the LDC will integrate into the school and achieve the expectations of the school curriculum. Pupils need to be able to access the curriculum independently and to have the potential to succeed at Common Entrance. Our aim is for pupils to be happy, motivated and efficient learners. We also strive to build their self-esteem, establish their self-awareness, self worth and confidence in the school environment and beyond. A wide range of specialist teaching is available with a visiting occupational therapist, speech therapist and educational psychologist. Lessons are designed to meet specific needs, as identified by tests or professional assessments. Strategies for classroom management are supplied to all staff to implement and these are reviewed termly. Lessons are usually on one-to-one basis and can be instead of Latin in years 5 to 8. Withdrawing pupils from curriculum subjects is avoided wherever possible. Special arrangements for examinations are applied for and word processors and laptops can be used when appropriate. The progress of pupils with the LDC is continually monitored and reviewed each term. The school has provision for EAL lessons for children for whom English is an additional language if, it is deemed that with appropriate help and support, they will benefit in due course from the mainstream curriculum and will be ultimately successful at Common Entrance. 09-09
