Mr Gavin Lambooy

Laddsworth Primary School was founded in 1903 by Miss Daisy Ladds and for over a century it has provided top-level, value-driven education to its community. Our School is set on a beautiful campus in the heart of Hilton, catering for boys and girls from Grade One to Seven. Our rich history underpins our proud traditions and strong values, while we keep abreast of the times, growing with and adapting to the requirements of a first-class education. Laddsworth provides our pupils with a robust foundation for future learning through our small classes, extended curriculum and extra-murals, and highly committed and qualified teachers who are supported by an actively involved School Governing Body.
Welcome to our website - a window on our gem of a school.
