Head's Welcome

‘At North Lakes School, pupils are happy and develop empathy and understanding for others. Children are considerate and respectful of one another.' - Ofsted, October 2023


On behalf of the governors, staff and children, it is a pleasure to welcome you to North Lakes School's website. Located in the beautiful town of Penrith, Cumbria, we believe our school is a safe, warm and caring environment, that is child-centred and fully inclusive.


We have developed an exciting and challenging curriculum that enables our children to deepen their understanding of the environment that they live in, whilst developing aspirations that prepare them for life in the 21st century. This is achieved through creating experiences and opportunities that are stimulating, meaningful, joyful and that our children will remember, long after their time with us.


It is a privilege to have been appointed Headteacher of North Lakes School and to be a part of every child's life journey, and to be able to support each child to develop into inquisitive young adults who challenge themselves whilst showing empathy and value for the world around them.


We are proud of our school and welcome parents and children to visit us to share our aims, beliefs and provision. Please feel welcome to contact the friendly school office to arrange a visit, ask questions and decide for yourself the quality of education on offer here at North Lakes School.
