Welcome toLancot School


We are located on large, beautiful grounds between Dunstable and Totternhoe. The school currently has over 440 pupils on the school roll, aged 3 to 11 years. We have a number of children travel from neighbouring towns and villages to learn with us because of our commitment to excellence. Lancot is an inclusive school and we promote an awareness of individual needs. Our school focuses on four key values; Strength, Working Together, Aspire and Nurture.
