Jan Shadick, BA MA

Executive Principal, Lambeth Academy 


Welcome to the Lambeth Academy website.

Lambeth Academy is a school committed to bringing out the best in everyone. Our mission is to ‘be exceptional’ in all that we do and we strive to ensure that all of our students and staff achieve their potential. We want our children and young people to be confident, well-rounded individuals who are prepared to play a full role in the world in which they live.

Lambeth Academy is at a very exciting stage. We are one of the most improved schools in the country and were judged by Ofsted to be a ‘good’ school following an inspection in February 2013. We are well placed on our journey to become ‘outstanding’ and exemplary in our practice.

We value our relationships with our parents and with our community and would encourage you to contact us if you would like to come and talk with someone or simply have a look round. We also welcome any feedback that you are able to give us.

We look forward to meeting with you.

Best wishes

Jan Shadick


Carol Shepherd, BA NPQH

Headteacher, Lambeth Academy


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.

We believe Lambeth Academy is a fantastic school, full of passionate and committed teachers, where students can fulfil their individual potential.

As part of the sixth form we have been members of the school community for up to 7 years. We are dedicated to making the lives of students as easy and peaceful as they can possibly be during their time at the school, we absolutely love to hear from everyone, our door is always open. Our team is specially trained in leadership and mentoring which means there is one prefect dedicated to solving any problem we may face.

Welcome, we hope you enjoy being part of our community.

Best wishes,

Krystelle, Joao & the Lambeth Academy prefect body.
