Welcome to Larches High School

We are located in Preston, Lancashire and are a secondary alternative school which provides full time education for up 140 pupils who are not able to access mainstream educational provision.

We have an inclusive philosophy and believe passionately in ensuring that all pupils are given the opportunities, skills, knowledge and qualifications to ensure they are able to reintegrate back into mainstream education or on to specialist provision, further education, employment or training

 “Not every child has an equal talent or an equal ability or an equal motivation, but every child has the right to develop their talent, their ability, their motivation” JFK

We recognise that our pupils are individuals and that “one size does not fit all”. We also understand that many of our pupils have not had a positive experience of education and we believe that it is our duty to re-engage them with the learning process.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Here you will find all the relevant information and news about our school and the services we offer our pupils, parents and other education providers. We look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
