Founded in 1973, Laxton Junior School is a co-educational day school (4-11 years), which is housed in new premises, located in the picturesque market town of Oundle, Northamptonshire. The school offers a broad and well-balanced curriculum where children are encouraged to fulfil their potential in a happy and secure environment, supported by a dedicated team of professionals.
Through the academic curriculum and caring pastoral system, the school aims to lay solid foundations in the development of well-motivated, confident and happy individuals who are always willing to give of their best on the road to high achievement.
Ask a pupil or parent what they like about Laxton Junior School and they will always mention the extra-curricular activities. In addition to the traditional games coaching that takes place, a huge variety of minority interests and hobbies are offered at the school in Oundle.
Ensembles, choirs and other groups provide an exciting range of musical opportunities and experiences. Pupils are encouraged to learn a musical instrument from an early age and individual lessons are arranged so that they do not interfere with the teaching and learning of core subjects.
The extra-curricular programme is delivered by an enthusiastic and energetic staff, who truly believe that working with children in an informal setting enables relationships to be built and talent to show itself.
