‘Balancing my academic studies with my life outdoors is always a challenge.
The Lakes School has really helped me to achieve my potential in the classroom
particularly with my A-Level courses.

They also know that my heart lies in the outdoors and they have done everything they can
to prepare me for a life in Outdoor Education. The Lakes School has been the perfect recipe
for me; academic challenge whilst appealing to my love for the outdoors.’

Jamie Hill, Sixth Form Student


Where every student is safe and secure so that they can learn with confidence, and where consideration for others and self discipline are developed.


With every student having a broad range of experiences and challenges, both inside and outside the classroom, and receiving first class teaching to ensure that they achieve their full potential.


To be a centre for learning for our whole community and, through this, to provide the best possible opportunities for every person who uses the school.

Year 7 Catering: nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread and our Year 7 bakers did a wonderful job this morning of bringing some finesse to their bread making.

Plaits, chia seeds, hearts and delicate bread for afternoon tea! Amazing creativity from our Year 7s.

Well done bakers!

Rotary Youth Speaks North West Regional Final: our team competed in the regional final at the weekend and were magnificent; inspired by excellent support from parents.

Our team did an amazing job of speaking about American gun laws.

Sadly, we didn't win, but the team have learned so much about confidence and preparation and we have students keen to try again next year.

A huge thank you to Mrs Dixon for providing such a great opportunity for our students.
