Lanchester Community Free School opened its doors for the first time in September 2014.   Welcome to our website, we hope that you will find out more about our school through the information contained within its pages.


Our school has been set up to ensure children from the local community have the opportunity to achieve ... for a better future.  We have high expectations and expect children to reach high academic standards.  We focus on developing the whole child: including their skills with language, the values they demonstrate, and their determination to succeed.


Our staff team are here to support and challenge your child, ensuring that they have a range of opportunities to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding throughout their school journey at Lanchester CFS.

Executive Principal

Executive Principal 1

My vision for Lanchester Community Free School is that it will be a community-based, outstanding centre of learning for children who are going places.


My role as Executive Principal is to share this vision with staff, parents, governors and children, focusing on how we develop the school to be outstanding.  I will ensure that your child enjoys coming to school each day to learn, and develops the skills and values to ensure s/he succeeds in their learning experience.  I have high expectations of children's behaviour and know that your child will respond well to our school values, rewards and sanctions. 


I look forward to meeting with prospective parents in order to answer any questions you may have about our school and what we can offer your child.  Please make an appointment through our school office.
