Word From The Head

Head Photo

From Richard Bool, Headmaster

I am delighted to introduce you to Lingfield College. It is a wonderful school that provides an excellent all-round education in a friendly, supportive environment, from nursery years to Sixth Form. The pupils are open, confident, focused and passionate about their school.

Our pupils’ academic achievements are outstanding; not because of strict entry criteria, but because they are taught well, encouraged and supported. Every year, many students secure their first-choice post-18 option, typically at a top university or on graduate training programmes with prestigious employers. At A Level, we aim to ensure that at least 80% of the grades achieved are A or B.

There is a robust enrichment programme in place to ensure students are stretched and stimulated. Our dynamic learning spaces and inspiring teachers encourage the students to aim high, be independent thinkers and flex their intellectual curiosity.

I am often asked about the ethos of our school and to sum it up, we are genuinely unique; we have struck the perfect balance of academic excellence and leading pastoral care. Ours is an environment where pupils are free to be themselves in the knowledge that they are respected and valued, both by peers and staff alike. In turn, this promotes the confidence to take risks, develop resilience and achieve great things. Our school community is down-to-earth, inclusive and friendly; wholly lacking in pretension. It is a school for the whole family.

The rounded, innovative curriculum here is underpinned by relevant, 21st century skills. Our educational vision was carefully shaped to equip pupils with a broad and wide-ranging education, which is constant in everything we do from Nursery to Sixth Form, and gives our students the skills and attributes to excel in their lives after leaving school.

Life here at Lingfield is never dull. Our pedagogic approach is to develop the whole person, so that pupils unlock their talents, find their strengths and flourish. They thrive both in the classroom and beyond the curriculum; be that academically, creatively or on the sports fields. Pupils have endless opportunities to get involved in these activities, regardless of their ability. Emotional intelligence is fostered and nurtured, and it is a privilege to watch the pupils develop and mature, striving for achievement while embracing the values of empathy and kindness.

I have now been the Headmaster for 11 years. I am proud to run a school that is so happy, kind and nurturing and which also provides a brilliant all-round education. The pupils are stretched and challenged but never stressed.

      Muddy Stilettos Review

      Parents I spoke to like the school’s community spirit, as well as the down-to-earth nature of the school. The balance of academic, sport and creative arts is good, and of course they love the gorgeous campus.
