Principal’s Message

“Our vision is to be an outstanding learning community where every individual is enabled to achieve their true potential. We are utterly committed to the development of all through high quality teaching and learning and wider opportunities to contribute to the life of the Academy itself and the world beyond.”

Your son’s or daughter’s education is as important to us as it is to you and we are dedicated to ensuring that each student is supported on their journey towards achieving excellence.

Our motto, Learning Changes Lives (Eruditio Vitas Commutat), reflects our belief in the importance of our work. Our core purpose is to ensure that every student makes outstanding progress.

We have high expectations of every student and insist on the highest standards of behaviour and respect.


The Academy’s ethos promotes a rich and diverse learning environment in which every student is offered the opportunity to grow in maturity and understanding. The curriculum has been devised to enable students to develop the skills and comprehension necessary to succeed in an increasingly competitive world.

We draw strength from strong partnerships: with our parents, the community we serve and the close links we have with Coloma Trust and Coloma Convent Girls’ School. Together we have extensive experience and expertise to guide our work.

This website gives you a brief insight into our ethos and our labour. Do come and visit us to see our principles in action. Please also let me know if you have any suggestions as to how we can improve.

I look forward to welcoming your daughter or son to The Archbishop Lanfranc Academy.

Michael del Río
