Agent Newsletter – July 2024

Dear Colleagues

As we approach the end of another successful term, we wanted to take a moment to thank you for your hard work and dedication in representing St Lawrence College. Your efforts have played a crucial role in showcasing the unique offerings of our school to prospective students and their families. I also have some exciting updates and opportunities to share with you.

Accolades and Achievements
We are proud to share some of the recent accolades and achievements that highlight the excellence of St Lawrence College.

This week, the Independent School Parent Magazine announced the shortlist for the Independent School of the Year Awards 2024. I am delighted to share that we have been shortlisted in two categories:

Independent Prep School of the Year

Independent School of the Year for Sporting Achievement

With a record number of entries this year, it is a real achievement for St Lawrence.

Top Ranking: St Lawrence is ranked amongst the top 5% sports schools in the UK and our sporting success continues. The term finished with a fantastic cricket week, our U15 girls played superbly well to make it to the Quarter Finals of the National Cricket Cup and our U14A XI won the Kent County Plate Competition.

Arabella was a prizewinner in her age category at the Canterbury Art Prize, Lara also clinched first prize as the Young Miniature Artist of the year and Art Scholar Tara was placed second nationally in the 2024 Rotary Young Artist Competition. And finally, yesterday, Miller placed 5th in the 800m at the National Prep School Athletics Championships.

Available Spaces
We still have spaces available for the upcoming term! This is a great opportunity to reach out to potential students who may be looking for last-minute options or are still undecided about their educational journey. Let’s work together to ensure that every student finds their place at St Lawrence College.

Summer Admissions and Tours
Our campus remains open throughout the summer for admissions and tours. This is an ideal time for prospective students to visit and experience the vibrant atmosphere of St Lawrence College. We encourage you to promote these tours to your networks and are a fantastic way for students to get a feel for the campus.
