On behalf of the children and staff I would like to welcome you to our academy website. Lantern Academy is proud to be part of the Learning Community Trust, a thriving Multi Academy Trust that is passionate about ensuring all children receive a quality education.

As headteacher of Lantern Academy I am proud of the rapid improvements the team have secured in terms of education, quality learning experiences and the building itself. Our values of We Care, We Respect and We Persevere are interwoven in all of our teachings and ensure children will leave us ready to embark on the next stage of their education. Opportunities within the academy ensure children have an opportunity to take on responsibility and understand how to be excellent role models.
