Everything you need to know about student life at Lytchett

The curriculum at all Key Stages is designed to provide students with a broad and balanced experience of learning which promotes an enjoyment and commitment to learning leading to excellent progress and achievement and the development of skills for life. In 2007, OFSTED confirmed that "the curriculum in the main school and in the Sixth Form is outstanding. The school offers a very broad and balanced curriculum which has responded to students' needs and their requests". The curriculum comprises every aspect of a student's educational experience within and outside the classroom. It builds on the foundations laid in feeder schools and is committed to adding value to student potential.

At KS4, an extensive range of extra curricular activities are provided aimed at enriching students' experiences and to support their personal development. All students undertake a two week period of work experience in Year 10. There is a well-established programme of guidance in place to support students' successful progression into the Sixth Form, Further Education or Work Place Learning (Apprenticeship) recognised as "outstanding" by OFSTED in 2007. "Students make informed choices on their future studies through the highly effective guidance they receive."

The Lytchett Sixth Form was established to provide for all students who are serious about taking their education and training further. It is a thriving and vigorous community which brings together a large number of committed and ambitious students who enjoy achieving.

The curriculum at Lytchett is hugely supported by a plethora of excellent facilities in all subject areas.

One is for the exclusive use of students at Key Stage 3; the other for use in the upper school. These areas provide vibrant learning environments with easy and extensive access to ICT facilities.

What our students have said…

I've been going to this school for over a year now. I'm in Year 11 and plan to stay for Sixth Form! I have been given such great support here, by all the staff, and it's helped me through so much. All the teachers are friendly and I highly recommend this school to every one of you. Thank you, Lytchett.

I've been at Lytchett Minster School since I was in Year 9. The school strives for you to achieve your best; the teaching is excellent. Many of the staff members don't teach because they have to, but because they are passionate about the subject. The resources are excellent as well. Overall, the school is a lively, thriving, active community full of eager students wishing to participate.

Lytchett Minster School is one of the best schools I've ever been to! The classrooms are spacious, the grounds are huge and the subjects are presented in exciting ways. The teachers are understanding and help you to analyse the problem when you are stuck which motivates you to exceed your usual standards. My favourite thing about Lytchett Minster School is the support that the staff provide when needed.
