Message from the Headteacher 

I am honoured to be the Headteacher of Lambeth Academy.  The school is a rich, diverse and inclusive community built on strong positive relationships and high aspirations for our students.  I am privileged to be a part of our students’ lives holding true to the belief that to realise the potential of our young people, we must do simple things consistently and 'exceptionally' well.

At Lambeth Academy, we constantly strive to inspire a passion for learning in our young people that goes beyond the school gates, out into the local community and ultimately enriches the society they live in. We are a strongly united school built around a supportive culture for learning where we empower our young people to feel free to pursue knowledge and ideas within a caring culture of warm relationships and powerful diversity.  In doing this we work closely with our families in order to continually develop resilient, confident and aspirational young people who we will be proud of and more importantly, who will be proud of themselves.
I am driven by one key principle which is that education can truly make a positive difference to a young person’s life and this is why I am excited to be placed in a trusted position to build on our past successes and lead the school forward to greater heights.

We are extremely proud of our school and we look forward to sharing that journey with you.
Carol Shepherd, BA NPQH
