About The Latimer Arts College
The Latimer Arts College is a thriving, high performing school where we place no boundaries on ambition, no limits on aspirations and no barriers in the way of achievement.
Together we share one key aim: to secure outstanding achievements for each individual by delivering excellence in all that we do. We are very proud of our students and to us, every child really does matter: we work tirelessly to make sure that each of our students feels valued, makes progress and achieves personal success so that they can be the best that they can be!
And we are fulfilling our commitment to this!
For prospective new staff, this is an exciting time to be joining the college and contributing to its future success. In 2013 the college secured its third year of results that are significantly above the national average with 66% A*-C including English and Maths and 92% A*-C grades overall.
The progress that our students are making is accelerating all the time: 70% of students made at least 3 levels of progress in English and 81% at least 3 levels of progress in Maths. These are outcomes that we are truly proud of.
We have approximately 1016 students at the college aged 11-18 who are nurtured through their education in a purposeful and caring community ethos based on respect for all.
We strongly value inclusivity and meeting the needs of individuals. We have designated special provision for Hearing Impaired students and a dedicated inclusion team offering additional social and emotional support to those who need it.
As a specialist Performing Arts college our commitment to the Arts is strong and there is always something stunning going on in our Masque Theatre: you might see a rehearsal, stumble across an impromptu performance in the foyer or be part of the audience at an evening concert. Expect the unexpected and the amazing - because that is what you will get!
We value the contributions that our staff make to student outcomes and support them with being able to meet our high expectations through a co-ordinated performance management system for both teaching and non-teaching staff.
At The Latimer Arts College partnerships are essential and through partnerships, we are a community growing and flourishing together.
