Kellen H Youth MP for Redcar and Cleveland (ex LJS pupil) has been chosen as the North East Debate Lead for this year’s Annual sitting in Parliament. He was chosen by ballot by his fellow North East MYPs.

He will be given a topic to debate (he doesn’t know the topic or if he is debating for or against) and will be filmed for  Parliament live on the 9th November.  Depending on the issue and/or how his speech goes, he could be on worldwide news. 

Well done and Good Luck Kellen!

Over the summer, Laurence Jackson School has secured two separate grants to help support them with purchasing PE equipment and coaching to enhance PE lessons and increase extra curricular opportunities for students at the school.

Laurence Jackson School had a number of excellent exam results to celebrate on GCSE Results Day.  These included Kate G achieved an outstanding set of exam results, achieving what only 731 other students nationally achieved, a full set of results at Grade 9 or A*, 10 Grade 9s and 2A*s – well done Kate, a fantastic set of results. 

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Silver Level Mark Award for the 2017/18 academic year.

It is with immense pride that I introduce myself as the Headteacher of Laurence Jackson School from September 2018. I feel very privileged to be leading this impressive school through the next phase of its development and determined to see Laurence Jackson School go from strength to strength.

Keira B in year 7 has recently won the English School’s Boxing Championship title in the Female 35Kg division! She has also been invited to an England training camp on 29th July. What a fantastic achievement!

The Making Opportunities Conference was a three-day event in October and June in Year 10, when the normal school timetable was suspended.

This year’s production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, which played to packed houses, was simply outstanding. The cast which included students from all year groups delivered two performances of the smash hit musical by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman and Tim Rice.

12 of our year 10 students completed their Silver DofE Expedition at the weekend.


Students walked from Roseberry Topping to Commondale on day 1. On day 2 students walked from Commondale to Lealholm in soaring temperatures but managed to complete the day in good spirits knowing that an ice cream was waiting for them.

We also managed to stream the England game on the iPad for students to watch. On day 3 students walked to their finish at Grosmont.


Once again a big thank you to Mr Weatherald, Miss Sadler and Miss Street for giving up their weekend to support this event.

Students have been asked to get creative and design the new memorial garden which will be situated near to the Sports Centre and the 3G pitches.

There are a number of items that must be included in the designs which are included in the design sheet instruction, as is the size and shape of the space available. Entries can be handed in either via form tutors or straight to L3 - where there will be a box for entries. There will be a winner from each form and also an overall winner. Below are a few pictures of the memorial garden from the old building.

Deadline for entries is Friday 6th July.

Any questions please see Miss Dixon or Mrs Spencer. Good luck Mrs Spencer/Miss Dixon
