​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Lacon Childe School is based in Cleobury Mortimer and currently attended by 550 students who travel from across the beautiful South Shropshire countryside. The school is a well-maintained range of buildings with specialist teaching facilities for all subjects including technology rooms, an extensive library, sports fields and all-weather pitches. We have 39 teaching and 47 support staff to ensure that students are supported in meeting their full potential.

We have the benefits of being a small secondary school and are able to offer opportunities from our knowledge of each and​​ every student; however, we also aim to provide the facilities and experience of a larger school through the excellence of our staff and the relationships that we have built with our community.

We converted to Academy status on October 1st 2014. We are now part of the Shropshire Gateway Educational Trust.

Lacon Childe School is a member of The Shropshire Gateway Educational Trust, a charity and company limited by guarantee, registered in England and Wales with company number 9115941 whose registered office is at Lacon Childe School, Love Lane, Cleobury Mortimer, DY14 8PE​​
