Step Back in Time

Several exceptional Old Lancastrians have been selected to appear on our inspirational Old Lancastrian staircase in the New Building.  

Our aim as a school is to create the leaders of tomorrow who will make a positive difference locally, nationally and globally.  As part of that, we want to showcase the remarkable breadth and variety of achievement of our former pupils. 

We do this in a number of ways already – but the staircase display is a new and particularly eye-catching part of this. 

These are the nineteen former pupils chosen by current students studying A-level Politics.  They span achievements in politics, science, business, sport, law and the arts – and much more besides.
