Excellence in Learning Community

Our Lady of Lourdes is a member of Excellence In Learning Community (ELC) which is a group of 17 Enfield schools that work together in partnership to improve the outcomes for all pupils and communities within the group.


There is a Steering Group within the ELC and Karen Khwaja (Garfield Primary Headteacher) is the current Chair of the Steering Group.


The role of the Excellence in Learning Community partnership is to promote our vision of ‘working together to deliver excellence in learning across our communities’.

  • Exceptional school to school support
  • Ongoing collaborative enrichment events
  • Developing additional funding sources to enrich our member schools learning offer through bid opportunities
