Loatlands Primary School (LPS) is a mid sized primary school (c.210 pupils). It also has a 78 place (39 FTE) Nursery unit housed in a separate building but which is situated on the same site. The school provides education for children living in the North Western sector of Desborough. This is mainly the Loatlands Ward and the 2001 census information indicates much lower levels of adults with higher educational qualifications. The catchment area covers a mixture of private and local authority housing. House prices are considerably lower than the national average.

 

In the last few years local housing development has somewhat altered the school's traditional catchment area. Numbers are buoyant with the school close to capacity. The Nursery is also fully subscribed despite competition from private nurseries. Numbers are stable with applications for the Reception class consistently oversubscribed. The school maintains single age year group classes. With an imminent need for more school numbers in Desborough, the long term future of the school has been subject to conjecture. Traditionally the school has had lower numbers of ethnic minority but significantly high numbers of pupils with SEN, this has reduced as the school's arrangements for provision mapping have enhanced. For more information on our school, our latest Prospectus is available to download above.
