The Light School is a new Christ-centred independent school, discipling children in a Godly character, academic excellence, and leadership. We are opening in Thurrock in September 2023 and are for children aged 3-10

Our founding team consists of passionate Christians and leaders in education who believe in educating children from a Biblical worldview, in line with our core values of faith, love and excellence. Light School is a charity and are blessed to have the former mayor of Thurrock as one of the governors. 

As a founding team, our experiences are vast, it includes Deputy Headteacher in a school with 1800 students who has led in a range of settings including an Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ school which was awarded ‘World Class Status’; supporting schools to maintain their ‘Good’ status and joining a school that had fallen into ‘Special Measures’ and leading in that school to secure a ‘Good’ judgement 15 months later.

Light School is reaching out to church leaders to inform them and their congregations of the new school and to ask if they could speak/meet to discuss the new school.
