Welcome to Lakeside; a school where children come first, a place to achieve, be happy, be respectful and stay safe.  If you are new to Lakeside, we are confident that your child will be very happy and well cared for and receive their right to a high quality education.

We are proud of our exciting integrated curriculum enriched with educational visits, residentials and out of school learning experiences which enable learners to succeed academically, socially and emotionally.  This develops essential life skills that they need for their future and supports the high standards we set for academic learning.

We place a high value on working alongside parents and are sure that by working together we will ensure your children will go on to be happy and successful learners.

At Lakeside, we believe that all our children can be their own personal best and that high expectations can be achieved through promoting our school moto;  ‘Reach for the Stars’
