About Laxton Junior School
Laxton Junior School is an independent, co-educational day school, with 260 children aged 4 to 11, in the beautiful market town of Oundle. We are part of The Corporation of Oundle School and, therefore, as stated by The Corporation’s Royal Charter, our object is to provide to our children an education of the very highest class.
Our children and their learning are at the centre of all that we do at Laxton Junior School. In a caring and supportive environment, they become exceptional, lifelong learners, who confidently embrace the wide-ranging opportunities that we offer and are able to face challenges with determination and resilience.
We believe that all learning opportunities should be challenging, inspiring and engaging and, through our talented and passionate staff, we ensure this contributes to fantastic progress and results; which, in turn, leads to a smooth transition into their chosen senior school. As a non-selective school, the personalised learning programmes that we have in place ensure that all our children, from those with specific learning needs to those working beyond age-related expectations, receive the perfect balance of support and challenge, alongside that all-important sense of fun and enjoyment that must accompany learning.
Whilst the academic standards of our children are very high indeed, we believe that the development of each child is about more than their achievements in the classroom. Through a commitment to digital literacy, excursions, educational visitors, outdoor learning, extra-curricular activities, sporting fixtures, music tuition and dramatic performances, an education at Laxton Junior School offers an inspiring array of opportunity.
Our children develop into confident individuals who are kind and respectful; they have the necessary independence to thrive in senior school whilst being sociable with excellent communication and teamwork skills. From Reception to Year Six, our children are impressive, ever excited about engaging with the education we offer and determined to make the most of every opportunity.
