Welcome to Our School

Headteacher's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Lacon Childe School.

At Lacon Childe we consider ourselves to be ‘more than just a school’. We are passionate about providing the best opportunities for all our students, so they can be happy and thrive, personally, socially and academically.

We are an ambitious and high performing 11-16 school set in the beautiful South Shropshire market town of Cleobury Mortimer. We have high aspirations for our students, and a commitment to the positive role we play in our local community.

At Lacon Childe we are very proud of the school’s strong sense of community. Every member of the school is recognised and valued. Students and staff work closely to make the school a happy and stimulating place to learn and grow.

We want all our students to be excited by their infinite potential, to experience academic success and to have a sense of how capable they are. Our aim is for all students to leave us knowing that they can make a valuable contribution to the wider community, not only equipped with the knowledge, skills and qualifications to access the next stage in their journey, but also with the confidence, aptitude and resilience to build positive relationships and achieve success in their chosen pathway.

We, as a staff body, continue to be inspired by our students. We are extremely proud of their efforts and their many achievements and remain grateful for the excellent support provided by staff, parents and governors.

Thank you for visiting our website. If you are interested in finding out more about the school and what we do, or you are interested in joining us, please contact us:

Poetry By Heart

Daffodils (1807)

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the Milky Way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced, but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
William Wordsworth

Well done to Mr Martin, Miss Lloyd and the whole cast of Matilda for the amazing performance!
