Hello!  My name is Laura.  I am the Literacy Lead and am based in the Library.  I help pupils improve their literacy skills.   If you have difficulties with reading, spelling and understanding we make a personalised literacy plan for you, using a variety of computer programmes, educational games and writing and spelling programmes. 


The Library has a huge range of books.  If there is a particular topic you are interested in, we can order books for you.


To encourage pupils’ reading, writing, speaking and listening skills we organise visits from birds of Prey, exotic animals, authors, farm animals, pantomime and much more!

Hi, my name is Ellie. I will be your main Science teacher, when you join us at Lakeside school. Our science lessons will help you to develop your problem solving skills and to access practical work.

The boys at Lakeside enjoy their Science lessons for different reasons but most of them say the practical work is fun and they particularly enjoy learning about interesting and sometimes mind blowing topics. We’re looking forward to welcoming you and helping you to develop your own love for learning in Science, so you make excellent progress.
