Good Schools Guide 2024

Loughborough Amherst School is proud to share the most recent review written by The Good Schools Guide.

The UK’s number one school guide provides independent and unbiased reviews of over 1300 schools across the UK, helping parents choose the best education for their children. The Good Schools Guide visited Loughborough Amherst School in April 2024 and the full review can be read here.

Experienced consultants visit each school, tour the facilities, and meet with pupils and teachers, as well as speaking with parents.  The written review is completely independent, with schools having absolutely no influence over what is written.

James Neville, Head at Loughborough Amherst School said: “We are delighted that this independent review captures perfectly the closeknit nature of our school community, how we know every pupil and are able to provide the highest quality education for each individual.  It’s also wonderful to see that parents speak so highly of the staff and school and the wealth of opportunity on offer.”

Here are a few of the highlights from the review:

  • They go out of their way to be helpful and reassuring – nothing is too much trouble
  • Healthy 28 A level subjects
  • The Foundation has a Steinway only music school, attracting top level musicians and inspiring novices with ‘truly inclusive’ approach
  • If you have a sporty child, they can join on equal footing in Foundation teams to compete at a high level
  • Pupils praise headmaster for immediately heeding their request to add drama to raft of GCSEs.
  • The only independent co-ed school in town
  • It feels like a village school – that’s the appeal
  • Every base covered pastorally
  • School council and pupil voice cite countless instances where request speedily granted
  • Pupils are self-aware, kind and friendly – ‘just lovely,’ as one parent put it
  • We get the best deal and none of the pressures of a selective, larger school but with all the benefits.
