Welcome to our school

Headteacher's Welcome

A very warm welcome to Lacon Childe School.

Lacon Childe is a thriving and high performing 11-16 school situated in the beautiful South Shropshire market town of Cleobury Mortimer. We serve a wide catchment area which extends into neighbouring Worcestershire.

We are a family-centred school at the heart of the community of Cleobury Mortimer that nurtures potential. Students at Lacon Childe are encouraged to excel in all areas of school life; academically, socially and personally. The school provides a secure, safe and caring environment that, when coupled with excellent teaching, ensures our students make outstanding progress.

Established in 1735, Lacon Childe School is a forward thinking school with reassuringly traditional values. This combination enables our students to achieve and succeed not only academically, but also become well rounded, responsible young people who have the skills, resourcefulness and resilience to play a meaningful role in the ever changing world in which they are growing up.

We are extremely proud of our students’ achievements and the excellent support they receive from our parents and staff.

Thank you again for visiting our website and if you are interested in finding out more about what we do or would like to join us then please contact us.

Normally at this time of year Lacon Childe would be celebrating Christmas and the talents of its pupils with the Winter Concert. Unfortunately, things are different this year and we are unable to hold a concert, but the talent of the Lacon Childe pupils remains undimmed! This video includes recordings of our musicians’ performances and photos our artists’ work. We know that this is no substitute for hearing and seeing our pupils’ work in the flesh, but we hope it will suffice until we can all be together again.


Merry Christmas from the Creative Arts Department!
