The school is situated in a very pleasant area of South Ribble close to the motorway networks including the M6, M61, M65 and M55. The immediate area is semi-rural and lies between Leyland to the south and Preston to the north. We became an outstanding school converter academy in August 2011 having previously been a Specialist Visual Arts College with a second specialism in Maths and Computing.
Lostock Hall Academy is first and foremost a happy school. Students enjoy lessons and the relationships between staff and students are excellent, this has been frequently noted by visitors and is mentioned as a strength of the school in the recent Ofsted report. Students behave well and have a good attitude to learning in the classroom.
