Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to Ludlow Church of England School.  We are a 11-16 community school, located in the beautiful county of Shropshire. Ludlow CE School is an academy within the Diocese of Hereford Multi-Academy Trust. We consider ourselves to be a very special and unique school in terms of what we offer to our students and the local community. This is due to being truly comprehensive and inclusive, as well as having a strong Church foundation. 

The school community shares a single vision of “Excellence Together”, where staff and students aim to make excellence a habit in all that we do: our teaching and learning, behaviour and care of each other, within a Christian and multi-faith ethos. Our vision is underpinned by our core Christian values of excellence, resilience and care.  We are ambitious in our aspirations for our students and want them to leave us as confident and articulate young people, able to succeed in an ever-changing world.

We believe these aims are only possible with the development of strong partnerships with our parents, carers, governors and trustees.  Due to this support, the school’s quality of education and outcomes have continued to improve, and we were judged by Ofsted to be a Good school, in their inspection in February 2020.  The school is well-placed to equip our students for the challenges ahead, and our curriculum is focused upon rigorous qualifications that are valued by education and business partners.            

We pride ourselves on the range and quality of the extra-curricular opportunities we are able to offer, alongside our enrichment programme, to ensure all students are able to excel in their preferred area of interest. We have particularly strong intervention and mentoring programmes, to assist students in achieving their goals.

We believe that the total educational experience of our students is vitally important to ensure that when they leave us they have the necessary knowledge, skills, attitudes and attributes to succeed in whichever area they wish. We also take the care and safety of our community very seriously. The school aims to help parents and carers understand that the school, like all others, has a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of all students. The school may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a student’s welfare.  We are sure that you will join us in this partnership. 

Thank you for visiting our website, and if it does not answer all of your questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
