Loughborough Schools Foundation is a family of independent day and boarding schools for boys and girls aged 6 weeks to 18.
The foundation can trace its roots back to 1495 with the opening of the Grammar School within Loughborough's Parish Church. 'In the ensuing five hundred plus years we have come a long way, but without ever losing sight of our pedigree, our commitment to serve Loughborough and the wider community, and our steadfast beliefs to balance academic achievement with moral guidance, happiness, opportunity and a kindred spirit within which everyone is known, understood and valued.'
The schools are part of a unique foundation offering the choice of education from six weeks old followed by two co-educational options for the prep years and then either all boys, all girls or continuing co-educational for the senior years.
Inspections provide parents with detailed information from which to assess key aspects of a school. Find out more about why inspections matter.
The Foundation's schools were last inspected in December 2021. Read the inspection reports on the school's website.
The Foundation is a registered charity managed by a board of governors. Read more on the Charity Commission website.
What makes the Loughborough Schools Foundation different?
Attain asked the foundation, what makes the Loughborough Schools Foundation different – and why should parents consider it?
We are the Loughborough Schools Foundation.
We are unique, a Foundation comprising a Nursery and four distinct Schools that can meet a family's educational expectations from the age of 6 weeks to 18 years.
We give families a choice of educational journey, with single sex and co-ed schooling. We provide pupils with the education, opportunity, values, good manners and life lessons they need to fulfil their ambitions.
As a family of Schools we combine academic achievement with co-curricular richness. We embrace new ideas but value and preserve traditions, and we believe happiness fuels success and that learning in beautiful surroundings benefits everyone.
