Welcome to Loughborough Amherst School


Dr. Julian Murphy

Thank you for taking a first step in considering Loughborough Amherst School for the education of your child. I hope that our website will give you some sense of the spirit of our caring, vibrant and inspiring community.

With the welcoming of boys into our Senior School in September 2019, we became Loughborough’s only co-educational independent school for children aged 4-18 years, thereby offering a unique and much-needed educational route to local families.

We are dedicated to creating an environment where every pupil has the opportunity for long term academic, spiritual and moral development within a challenging but happy environment.

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.

I am confident that, having met our staff and pupils and seen all that we have to offer as part of the Loughborough Schools Foundation, you will – like me – feel that this is a school that combines the finest of the traditional and the modern to provide a caring and rounded education of the very highest quality.
