    Lakeside School has a proven track record of delivering excellent outcomes for our pupils, in all areas of their development, having achieved an outstanding judgment for the third time by Ofsted (Nov 2010, Jan 2014, Jan 2017). Our small, calm, nurturing environment provides pupils with the opportunities to thrive educationally, socially, and behaviorally.

    We pride ourselves on offering our pupils a family-orientated environment, safe in the knowledge that for pupils to make progress academically, they need to feel comfortable in their surroundings. We offer high levels of support and encourage pupils to become independent, productive members of society.

    Lakeside School is a co-educational, independent, specialist day school in Merseyside providing high-quality education for children between the ages of 5 and 13. The school meets the needs of a diverse group of pupils with special needs including speech, language, and communication difficulties, attention deficit disorder, and social and emotional difficulties.

    We are committed to providing our pupils with a caring, nurturing, and positive learning environment for them to achieve their full potential in their education and develop their social communication.

    The broad curriculum allows pupils to develop academically and at the same time, we encourage them to find and build their talents and interests through experiencing a wide range of new activities.

    ‘Great things come in little packages’ – this is never truer than at Lakeside School where our close-knit has created a truly nurturing and family-orientated culture in a tranquil and homely setting. The school’s ambition is to ‘nurture every child’s talent to release their full potential and our track record is one of outstanding achievement, both in terms of academic progress and unrivaled outcomes for children who have been failed by previous educational settings. Our expertise and experience set Lakeside apart and this is evidenced by both the school's ability to engage with every child and their record of returning children to mainstream education.

    Lakeside School offers pupils a broad, balanced, and relevant curriculum through which every child is allowed to reach their full potential.

    We believe in encouraging pupils’ self-esteem, which is often low when they start with us, by ensuring the curriculum and tasks set are achievable for them, thus enabling them to further thrive and develop.

    We also provide intervention programs in Literacy and Numeracy to help pupils outside the classroom session to help increase confidence and progression.

    We offer our ‘Children’s Choice’ curriculum which provides children the opportunities to develop skills and talents or explore new and exciting activities that could lead to a hobby or help realize a career aspiration. These include:

    • Independent cooking
    • Arts and crafts
    • Gardening
    • Drawing
    • First Aid
    • Singing
    • Fishing
    • Writing
    • Rugby

    Pupils in Key Stage 1 and 2 attend Lakeside School. We can also offer Key Stage 3 in exceptional circumstances. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum with opportunities for enrichment activities through educational visits and field trips, offsite activities such as swimming, trampolining, horse riding, and our ‘Children’s Choice’ curriculum.

    Pupils can take part in a range of off-site activities. Trips are usually linked to the curriculum to help enhance pupils learning experiences.

    Activities also provide opportunities for children to practice and develop their social and emotional skills. A wide variety of exciting educational activities are available such as swimming, ball, horse riding, trampolining, gymnastics, overnight camps, museums, field trips, and much more.
