About Loughborough Schools Foundation

Why choose the Loughborough Schools Foundation?
Whichever School or Schools your child goes on to attend, their education will be enriched by it being part of our Foundation.

A place of opportunity – to learn, to discover, explore, make new friends, try new things and always feel cared for and cared about.

A place of enduring happiness – built on inclusion for the whole family, selflessness, common courtesy and the warmth of your welcome.

A place of inspiration – to stretch, stimulate, raise children’s sights and prepare every child to go out into the world and make it a better place; a wonderful ambition written not by a Headmaster but by some of our Sixth Form girls.

In summary why just go to School when you could join a family and a Foundation that is so much more.
