Brief Summary of Lawson Brown High School
Founded in 1953, Lawson Brown High School, has grown from the initial 109 grade eight pupils and 4 members of staff, to a current pupil population of 851 with 42 staff. The slogan that best describes the reality of our time of existence, 60 years of excellence, is the foundation on which all activity during this year of celebration is built.
We endeavour not to deviate from what our forefathers had envisaged when this school was opened in 1953

Lawson Teaches For Life
I was a student at your school 1995-1999. I was very blessed to have completed my high school years at Lawson Brown.
I am writing to you as I feel that we should always acknowledge those who have helped us along this journey of life.
