Our Motto

Nihil Nisi Optimum

nothing but the best

remains a constant reminder of the high standards to which we must all aspire.

Carlton le Willows has long had a reputation in the area as a caring school where the high expectations of pupils contributes much to the success they have achieved in examinations over many years.

We are proud of our strong reputation and work hard to ensure every student has the opportunity to better their best. We are committed to achieving our overriding goal that is set out in our motto ‘Nihil Nisi Optimum’ (Nothing but the best).

The motto is our promise to parents, it is a statement of our intent and a description of what we do. Le Willows has served this community since the fifties and several generations of students have come and gone, each richly benefitting from the high standards, high levels of achievement, warm relationships, good discipline and the strong sense of purpose we offer here. We believe we make a difference in the lives of the children with whom we work and we are proud of our record of success.
