'At the heart of the educational process lies the child'

                                                                             (Plowden 1967)


At Larchfield our vision states, ‘Our children are central to all that we do.’ We believe that children must enjoy coming to school, be happy and healthy and, inspired to learn.  We are a ‘listening school’ and, feedback from our children ensures that we fulfil this responsibility. Our children are very proud of their school and they achieve well academically. The breadth of experience provided through music and sport develops self-confidence that is vital for successful learning.


As parents and guardians, you are an integral part of your child’s success. Through ‘working as one together’ we nurture, encourage and educate our children to become independent thinkers; the women and men of the future.


Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever take on her/his behalf. We welcome visitors to come and see our school in action.  In this way, you can see for yourself how we live our vision.


We look forward to meeting you.
