Thank you for your interest in La Fontaine Academy!
We are a proudly and proactively inclusive school that believes our differences are what make us stronger. We welcome all families to our community and work hard to make sure that everyone feels that they are part of something special.
Using evidenced-based pedagogy, and a very carefully planned curriculum that runs through from Reception to Year 6, our teachers provide the children at La Fontaine with a world-class education. For us, it’s important to get the fundamentals correct, so that the children can continue to flourish as they go to secondary school and beyond.
Below is information on how you can find out more about our school and then apply to be part of our community.
