Welcome to our school


We are located by the village of Kirkland, near Rowrah, 3 miles out of Frizington and 10 miles from Cockermouth, just off the main A5086 road.


Our rural school is surrounded by open countryside and beautiful views across to the Ennerdale hills, providing us with an inspirational environment for outdoor learning.  The school's outside area includes: a large field, enclosed sports area/playground, Early Years outdoor area and a separate nursery/toddler group play area.


Our school mission, 'to develop life long learning and appreciation of both individuality and partnership' is embedded across the school.  We offer a warm, welcoming, caring environment, often commented upon by visitors to the school, and our expectations of learning and behaviour are high.


Our curriculum is broad, balanced and carefully planned to meet the needs and interests of our children whilst deepening their knowledge and understanding of their own locality; a main feature of our work is the number of out-of-school opportunities we offer our pupils.


We cater for children aged from 2-11 years and if needed we  are able to offer wrap care before and after school. 


We like to update our website regularly, so do add us to your favourites to keep up to date with all that is happening here!
