Drone shot of the school

Welcome to Senior School (age 11-18)

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.

Our aim is to ensure that every individual achieves their potential and this is most clearly illustrated in our excellent Value Added academic results. A combination of dedicated teachers, a broad and challenging curriculum, strong work ethic and focus on core educational skills combine to provide a stimulating, inspiring and purposeful learning experience for our pupils. All of this is underpinned by High Performance Learning; an understanding that intelligence is not fixed and that high performance in education is achievable by all. We are proud to have been one of only 14 schools globally to have been granted the status of a World Class High Performance Learning School.

This belief in the potential of every child is also seen through our pastoral provision. Our dedicated team of Housemasters and Housemistresses provide excellent pastoral and academic support to the pupils in their care. The link between positive mental health and academic success is well publicised and it is our House Pastoral Teams who ensure that each pupil’s wellbeing is maximised to allow them to fully engage and succeed in all areas of school life. The central role of the Chaplain and strong Christian ethos also ensures that our pupils develop an understanding of tolerance, diversity, faith and forgiveness.

St Lawrence has a long history of sporting excellence, with three OLs representing Great Britain in the 1908 Olympic Games and our first hockey international being capped in 1920! The College still boasts an exceptional team of coaches who have helped a number of our teams to win National Championships and our pupils to gain International Honours. However, it is not just sporting excellence that is prized as we aim to provide our pupils with a genuinely holistic education. Children should be exposed to a raft of opportunities and experiences to find their forte, whether this is in the creative arts, charity and service activities or the CCF. The leadership opportunities and understanding of self, community and teamwork that comes from a broad ranging extracurricular programme are essential to developing global citizens who are outward facing, confident, emotionally intelligent and equipped with the skills to lead in the 21st century marketplace.

Whilst we have historic buildings and state of the art facilities, our best asset is our pupils and I would encourage you to visit the school to experience the warmth, sense of purpose and energy that characterises our school day.

Barney Durrant MA
Head of College

Pupils display notably strong levels of confidence and resilience as individuals and hold ambitions and aspirations.

Last Term saw us return to the Rosslyn Park Rugby 7s tournament. Both the U18 and U16 teams should be very proud of themselves for their performances.
