Ethos & Values
At St Lawrence we believe in learning.
All kinds of learning for all kinds of children.
We put learning at the heart of everything we do.
This is because we know that wherever learning flourishes,
children flourish too.

Our Trust's Statement of Intent
The Howard Partnership Trust will bring out the best by providing a rich experience both within and beyond the classroom. This will enable all our young people to thrive personally and academically, overcome challenges and make a positive contribution to society.
