Quick Background

Larwood School is a dynamic, exciting and successful primary day/residential special school with an innovative and constantly evolving curriculum for boys and girls with social, emotional and mental health related difficulties. 

The school is named after Harold Larwood, the English fast bowler famous for his part in winning the Ashes. The name Larwood was chosen because Harold was a working man who became a sporting hero through effort and hard work.

Located in Stevenage and situated in its own grounds, Larwood is well staffed with excellent resources and facilities for learning, sport and recreation, play and enjoyment. We have a wide ranging curriculum providing learning, rewarding and enjoyable opportunities delivered across the school and extended day, as well as weekly boarding for up to 24 children.

The ethos and approach to the management of pupil behaviour is developed from the belief that children will be encouraged to respond well when their appropriate behaviours and achievements receive consistent positive recognition and reward.

As a member of the Larwood Team you will receive support, guidance and training to enable you to deliver the high expectations we have as well as unlocking and realising the true potential of the children. All staff are expected to embrace this philosophy and deliver consistent responses and actions at all times.

If you believe in yourself and have the desire and commitment to succeed with the most challenging and rewarding children then we cannot wait to hear from you and look forward to welcoming you to our school.
