What The Good Schools Guide says..
Everything about the school is focused on bringing out the best in boys – from the 40 minute morning break where they can tear around fields and woodlands with just enough time for a bit of den-building before the bell calls them to lessons, to the pristine well-structured classrooms (if there was a GSG award for the cleanest prep, Lockers would be in with a good chance)
What the school says...
Lockers Park is a happy, small all-boys day and boarding school set in attractive parkland. The school is proud of its all-round record; the number of scholarships awarded to senior schools over the past few years is around ten each year and includes academic, music, art and technology. Lockers offers a real family atmosphere, where boys are safe, happy, well fed and looked-after. Whilst day boys can enjoy all the facilities and opportunities of a boarding school; boarding is fun; dormitories are warm, friendly rooms and opportunities for a variety of enjoyable weekend activities are immense. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
We provide specialist, individual tuition to address difficulties, primarily with literacy and numeracy. Tuition takes place out of class, with the SENCO or maths support teacher. There is a rotating timetable of specialist support lessons, such that no child misses more than one lesson of any academic subject during the term. A TEFL qualified teacher provides weekly or twice-weekly tuition, outside of the academic timetable, for students for whom English is a second language. 09-09
