What the school says...

Lambeth Academy is a diverse inner London comprehensive school which forms part of the United Learning family of schools. We are situated in Clapham but close to the border with Wandsworth. We select up to 10% of our cohort on their potential to be bilingual in French and English. Our bilingual programme is rapidly expanding and we work closely with the bilingual primary schools in our area.

Lambeth Academy recognises the uniqueness of each and every one of its' students. We value high standards of academic attainment and are in the top 10% of schools nationally in terms of the progress our students make. Our 6th form results are consistently amongst the best in the borough. We believe in achieving these standards through high expectations, great teaching and a strong focus on the development of character. We work closely with a number of HE providers and world class businesses to provide significant opportunites for our students to gain wider experiences and develop new skills which serve them well as adults. This is delivered through the day and also in an extensive co-curricular acitivites. We are seeking to develop the leadership potential of our young people.

Our curriculum is broad and balanced. We value the creative subjects and all students have opportunities to take part in Dance, Drama, PE, Music and Art from year 7, alongside the more traditional subjects of Maths, English, Science and Humanities.

Our students go on to achieve great things. We are proud to support them to be responsible, active citizens who can express their individuality.
