Welcome to Lantern Lane Primary and Nursery School

Our school is a welcoming place to learn for children aged 3 to 11 and is situated in East Leake, a village between Loughborough and Nottingham. A school has stood on this site for 70 years with the current building being opened in September 2003; we are proud of our well-equipped classrooms, dedicated staff and our caring and inclusive community.

Our C.A.R.E values lie at the heart of everything we do; our aim is for all our pupils to develop confidence in themselves, achieve their full potential and engage in every opportunity in school in a respectful and enthusiastic manner. 

Rated 'good' by OFSTED (Dec 2022)

Whilst visiting classrooms, they also noted that, 'Pupils are engaged and they want to learn. There is an unmistakable sense of enthusiasm and aspiration.'  Pupils said, 'they feel safe at the school, and that staff are very caring. Pupils feel listened to.'  They describe our school as, 'a united community' which we look forward to welcoming you into.
