What the school says...

Founded in 1973, Laxton Junior School is housed in purpose built premises, located in the picturesque market town of Oundle. The school offers a broad and well-balanced curriculum where children are encouraged to fulfil their potential in a happy, secure environment, supported by a dedicated team of professionals. Through the academic curriculum and nurturing pastoral system, the school aims to lay solid foundations in the development of well-motivated, confident and happy individuals who are always willing to give of their best on the road to high achievement. Ask a pupil or parent what they like about Laxton Junior School and they will always mention the extra-curricular activities. In addition to the traditional games coaching that takes place, a huge variety of minority interests and hobbies are offered. Ensembles, choirs and other groups also provide an exciting range of musical opportunities and experiences. ...Read more
