NLS Awarded Silver Award for Philosophy (Nov 2012)

Earlier this year, North Lakes School became one of the first schools to be awarded a Bronze Award for Philosophy for Children at North Lakes. 

We are delighted to announce that at the SAPERE Conference in London, North Lakes School were awarded the SAPERE SILVER AWARD - again, we are one of the first in the UK and the first in Cumbria. 'North Lakes is an excellent example of a school embedding questioning and enquiry skills through the philosophical approach across the whole school over a sustained period since 2003' (

We have now been asked to apply for their highest accolade - 'The Gold Award'- in 2013. Thanks go to all the pupils, parents, staff and wider school community for their continued support. Visit our P4C section on the school website
