About Ludlow Church of England School
We are a 11-16 community school located in the beautiful county of Shropshire. Ludlow CE School is a partner academy of the Bishop Anthony Educational Trust. We consider ourselves to be a very special and unique school in terms of what we offer to our students and the local community. This is due to being truly comprehensive and inclusive, as well as having a church foundation. The school community shares a single vision of “Excellence Together”, where staff and students aim to make excellence a habit in all that we do: our teaching and learning, behaviour and care of each other. Both Ofsted, in 2015, and The Church of England Inspection (SIAMS) in 2017, confirmed the school as Good, with areas of outstanding practice. Good overall, but Outstanding for English and Maths, the school prides itself on the great opportunities we offer our students within, and outside, the normal curriculum. The school curriculum itself is broad, balanced, and offers students the courses and qualifications that are respected by colleges, employers and the local community - in effect, real qualifications! Allied to this, our outcomes for Personal Development and Welfare are viewed as Outstanding by Ofsted.
