Former LJS student Connor Simpson has recently signed for Championship club Preston North End from Hartlepool Utd.
In his first game for the U18 team, Connor scored a hat trick! Connor visited LJS to hand over a signed PNE shirt which we will display in the sports centre.
We are very proud of Connor’s brilliant achievements to date and we look forward to following his career in the future.

On Thursday 1 February a large number of our students attended the Duke of Edinburgh awards evening at Freebrough Academy. 49 of our current students achieved their bronze award, 8 students achieved their silver award and a number of students have since gone on to achieve their gold award since leaving Laurence Jackson.
A huge well done to all of the students who have shown exceptional levels of commitment and enthusiasm to complete their qualifications.
None of this would have been possible without the support and guidance of the course leader Mr Wyke along with Miss Sadler, Miss Street and Miss Coleman along with many other staff volunteers who have given up their free time to help the students complete expeditions and support them with many other aspects of the qualification.
On Saturday 27 January 18 KS3 students competed at the Stand Strong regional Cheerleading Championships at Sport Central, Northumbria University, Newcastle.
The girls performed amazingly well (many for the first time) and WON their category to be crowned Regional Level 1 Junior Prep Champions 2018! Well done!
