I am delighted to welcome you to AKS Lytham.
We are fortunate to be set in a stunning beach-front location on the Fylde coast, in wonderful buildings with superb facilities. The magic, though, is in the close community of the school: amongst its students, teachers, parents and support staff, there is a real and tangible warmth, where people are known and supported, challenged and cared for every day.
We believe that the best possible education is not only academically rigorous but provides a broad range of opportunities and experiences to ensure that everyone, whatever their individual aspirations, is able to embrace the challenges of the world with confidence.
We build on this every day, with excellent teaching, a wide co-curricular offering and superb pastoral support. As an accredited Round Square school, we are able to tap into an international network of educators, helping us to deliver a world-class approach to character education, leadership and enabling our students to develop global mindset. We are proud not just of the superb examination results our students achieve, but of the many ways they contribute, whether it is performing on stage, on the sports pitch, in service of others, or elsewhere - there is no typical AKS student.
From the moment I stepped through the doors of AKS, I knew it offered exactly the education that I want for my own children, and every day I spend here endorses that first impression. Our aims as a school – academic ambition, individual pathways, success and value – are always on our minds and our staff are dedicated to putting the interests of the students at the forefront of everything we do.
Whilst our website gives a flavour of our school, to really feel what makes this such a special place, there is no substitute for a visit and I look forward to welcoming you to this vibrant and compassionate community of learners. There really is nowhere quite like it.
