About our School



  St Lawrence CE Primary School is a one form entry primary school in the heart of the market town of Alton.  We have

 a dedicated  and passionate team of staff who strive to meet the needs of every child in an exciting and innovative way. We pride ourselves on making learning irresistible. Outcomes throughout the school are strong with results well above county and national averages.



  We are a warm, welcoming school and have strong relationships with the local community. Visitors always comment on

 how polite and respectful the children are and enthuse about the calm, purposeful feel of the school. Many parents

 describe the school as being one big family- going above and beyond to support every family.


  Our recent Ofsted report ( Feb 2017) ' The Saint Lawrence values of Love, Compassion and Respect are clear throughout the school. Staff pride themselves on knowing each pupil really well so they can plan specific learning activities and provide pastoral support where needed. Both parents and staff refer to the school as being ‘a family’. One parent said there is, ‘a strong family-feel where the value of love is clear and underpins so much of what they do.'


We welcome you to come and visit us - feel for yourself the strong values that underpin the work of the school and see how the learning here is shaped to ensure children love learning and thirve on the challenges they are set.
