Lanner House School caters for Pre-School, Primary School and the first two years of High School, giving due attention to the varying developmental needs of every learner at the school.

This is made possible through small classes of no more than 16 children, where children are carefully monitored and encouraged to meet their learning potential. The curriculum has a focus on academic achievement, but attaches similar significance to their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. The school’s Christian ethos translates into a caring school community, where tolerance and understanding is espoused in the daily running of Lanner House.

The staff at Lanner House is committed to providing learners with all of the required skills and attitudes that will enable them to make a success of their futures. In the achievement of this aim, the school provides a range of opportunities that will enhance the school experience of the learners, including regular field trips and specialist programmes as learners progress within the system.

Teachers are also involved in on-going training to ensure that the education on offer at Lanner House is of the highest quality. It is through the school’s careful structure that learners graduate as confident, responsible leaders, with an appreciation for the environment and needs of the community they live in. Education at Lanner House is special owing to the structured balance offered within its walls. Traditional values merge with modern facilities to ensure that learners receive the best means by which to achieve their personal best in an evolving world.

This year, the school is pleased to welcome their new Headmaster, Mr Warick Middleton. Mr Middleton has spent the last 10 years in independent education in the United Kingdom. He brings an international dimension to education at Lanner House. Pupils will, therefore, continue to be exposed to new trends and education on a global scale. This vibrant school is always learning, always growing and always becoming.

Lanner House places an emphasis on arts and culture, incorporating music, drama and visual arts. The school simultaneously encourages participation of extra-curricular sporting ventures, recognising the variety of disciplines popular amongst its learners. In keeping with this, learners at Lanner House take part in a number of codes such as hockey, cricket, athletics, swimming, soccer, tennis and netball.

There is also a big focus on the school’s Outdoor Enjoyment Programme, whereby learners are given the skills to maximise their appreciation and recreation in nature.

The broad-based dedication to a culture of learning finds expression at Lanner House. The school is intent on providing learners with the grounding they need to pave the way for prosperous futures, and endows them with happy memories upon which to build. Over and above this, Lanner House School is a family, comprising staff, learners and parents, all ensuring the best for one another in a special learning environment.
