Helping children

climb their own



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



We inspire young people to be ambitious, creative and to develop a lifelong love of learning.


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.


We challenge young people to achieve the high standards we set for them and encourage them to be proud of their achievements.


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.


We empower young people to become skilled, knowledgeable, independent and socially aware.

🇦🇺 Miss Anderson & Miss Harris, and their team of students, have been busy creating joey pouches to support our animal friends in Australia. 22 pouches will shortly by heading to the Southern Hemisphere.

We send our very best wishes to everyone affected by the fires. 🇦🇺 🇬🇧

Kindness: Thanks to Mrs Bury and her team for installing a brand new display in Room 15. It’s beautiful.

Today is always a good day for a random act of kindness...

CAREERS UPDATE - Today we welcomed former student Isaac Johnston who came in to talk to our Year 10 students about his career path from work experience, GCSE’s, A-levels and then to an apprenticeship with the John Muir Trust. Isaac is now the Glenridding Common (Helvellyn) Ranger. It was great to hear how some of the experiences that Isaac had at school led him to where he is today.

A huge Lakes School thank you to Isaac for inspiring our students.

Huge congratulations to our u15 netball squad who today finished 4th out of 8 schools in the South Lakes tournament on Monday. They finished 2nd in the group stage, with a convincing win over Cartmel Priory, a well fought victory against QES & losing only to Windermere School. They then met the eventual tournament winners of Sedbergh School in the semi-finals who proved to be just too strong for our mixed age squad.
We then played against Windermere once again in the 3rd/4th place play-off, claiming 4th place after a tough last game. A fantastic achievement for our squad comprising 2 year 8, 2 year 9 and 4 year 10 players! Well done girls!

Thanks to their coach Mrs Jeffrey!
