About the school
Lampton School is an Ofsted-rated ‘outstanding’ school and was one of the first teaching schools to be established by the DfE. A ‘complex urban’ comprehensive, the school is non-selective and its 1,600 students come from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds, but generally fall below the national average in terms of ability and socio-economic circumstances with 1,200 students speaking English as an additional language. However, student achievement is above average and the school has been deemed ‘outstanding in challenging circumstances’ by Ofsted in each of its last three inspections.
Its 170 staff have year on year been responsible for the significant student progress or ‘value added’ measure.
