Welcome to Lampton Academy
It is my pleasure to be able to write to you formally in my new role as Headteacher of Lampton School. Having been at the school since 2004, I am very familiar with many of you, the school and our local community, and am looking forward to meeting many of you again in the coming months.
Our public examination results were very pleasing at AS and A Level this year. 82% of students in Y13 achieved grades A*- C at A level with nearly 50% of grades being at A*/A – B. This has allowed students to progress to the destinations of their choice whether this is a university course or employment – 144 students were placed at university – 30 at the elite ‘Russell Group’ and ‘1994 Group’ institutions.
At GCSE, results were above the national average and in line with the school’s results in 2014. 81% of pupils in Y11 achieved 5 A*- C grades, with 62% achieving this with English and mathematics. 39% of pupils achieved the EBacc academic suite of subjects, again above the national average. The progress made by Lampton pupils was very strong, and this measure of progress is forming the main element of the Government’s new accountability measures for schools. I will be writing more about these new measures later in the year.
I would like to offer my congratulations to all students and pupils who took public examinations in the summer and wish them the very best for the future. If they have left us, we look forward to welcoming them back to Lampton to let us know how they are getting on elsewhere.
A change in leadership in any institution is a great opportunity to reflect on our past successes and plan for the future. My expectations of pupils and students at Lampton and our ethos remain unchanged – we strive for excellence in all that we do. Our school motto,’ Optima Tenete’, ‘Hold on to the Best’, should guide our future vision. The bullet points below outline my vision for Lampton in the coming years and I know that I can rely on the support of all members of the school community in supporting myself and the Senior Leadership Team in making this vision a reality.
With best wishes,
Stephen Davis, Headteacher
