Your Child’s Journey Starts Here

Welcome to St Lawrence College

St Lawrence College has a rich history and a reputation for excellence. The genuine feeling of community is tangible and there is no doubt that the Christian values, boarding ethos, all-through nature of the school and focus on the individual contribute to a feeling of care and compassion that permeates every corner of the campus. It is my honour and privilege to be leading such an outstanding school.

Welcome From the Head of the College


“Since starting here, I have become better at speaking English, have developed more in Art and have achieved a good effort in Games – I am hoping to join the school badminton team.”
Edmond, Year 10 Boarder
"My school is wonderful and I would recommend it to others who feel like they need the opportunity to spread their wings a little more”
Year 6 Day Pupil
“From the very first day I discovered many new opportunities. For example, I played paintball with the teachers and swam in the house swimming competition. And, even after one year at St Lawrence, I can’t say I’ve tried everything that this school offers! “
Matvey, Upper Sixth
"You very easily and quickly get into a daily routine and make close friends. It´s been a lot of fun being at St Lawrence. Joining this school has been one of the best decisions of my life."
Oliver, Lower Sixth
“My children have continued through their school years with respect for others, understanding of different cultures, the ability to hold conversations with different peer groups and with adults.”
Mrs Jury, Senior and Junior Parent
"Sam lights up when he tells us what he has been up to at the School and the regular exeat weekends mean that as parents we never feel far away"
Mr and Mrs Callaghan, Boarding Parents
“All of the Staff in the Junior School are magnificent. The self-confidence and happiness my daughter has gained since starting at St Lawrence College has been wonderful to see.”
Mrs Radcliffe, Year 2 Parent
"When I look back on my time at school, it is clear that St Lawrence was always very grounded and realistic. St Lawrence produced the Head of the Army and the Head of the Police and that, in many ways, says something about the benefits of a St Lawrence education."
Paul Callum - Manor 1984
"For me, being at St Lawrence wasn’t just about receiving an academic education, although the aim was to leave with at least a couple of A-levels! We were also educated in essential life skills, either absorbed by the environment or learned in our extra-curricular activities. Basic manners were an expectation; holding the door for someone, being respectful to the teachers, obeying the rule to not walk on Chapel Green and in doing this you learned to be respectful and conscientious towards others."
Elizabeth Mooney - Laing 1992
"I loved the creative aspects of my time at SLC. I was involved in some of the performances and productions such as; the House talent shows, the SLC Ale festivals, various productions and musicals."
Ronnie Skelton - 2015
"When I look back over my life to date, I can see that St Lawrence College has always played a part in some way. When I started at the Junior School, my father and grandfather were already teaching there. My uncle and sister have been there too. The activities at the School had the biggest impact on me as I got to try so many different things. CCF had a particularly big influence on me. I loved adventurous activities, sport, being outdoors and problem solving."
Jamie Clifford - Newlands 1994

"It was fantastic to be able to share with parents the many various cricket programmes that we run at St Lawrence College. It is important for parents to understand where their child is on our cricket pathway, where they want to get to and what it looks like to get there. This is one of many reasons why we are nationally recognised as being in the top 100 schools in the country for cricket" – Mr Simmons, Head of Cricket Find out more about our Junior Cricket Development Morning here - ...
