Welcome to Loughborough Amherst School

Headmaster

Mr James Neville MA (Oxon), MPhil (Cantab)

Welcome to Amherst.

Ours is a caring, vibrant and inspiring community, where pupils' enthusiasms and creativity shine through in every aspect of school life. We warmly encourage you to visit us in person and experience for yourself what makes our school community so special.

Since 1850, our belief in educating the whole person stems from our founder, Antonio Rosmini, who said 'a pupil must be allowed to grow and develop as an integrated human person.' This is at the heart of our commitment to academic excellence, personal development, co-curricular opportunity and faith in action.

We encourage and challenge every pupil to become the very best version of themselves and aim to help parents in their task of nurturing confident, compassionate and happy young people.

We are a Catholic school in the truest sense, universal and welcoming of all, regardless of faith background. We seek to nurture in every pupil a concern for the world around them, compassion for others and a deep sense of wonder.

As part of the Loughborough Schools Foundation, Amherst pupils enjoy sector-leading facilities, including the Midlands' only ‘All-Steinway' Music School, The Parkin Sports Centre, Forest School and swimming pool.

I am confident that, having met our staff and pupils and seen all that we have to offer, you will agree that our school combines the best of tradition and contemporary thinking to provide a rounded education of the very highest quality.
