The Priory School

Cartmel Priory Church of England School is a school of which we are all justifiably proud.

"This outstanding school has a great many strengths" (OFSTED, April 2010)


It's mission statement is:

Run Faster, Reach Further, Aim Higher, Grow Tall
Work Harder, Think Deeper, Laugh Louder, Love All

This mission statement reflects the schools belief that education is about the whole child and that staff and students should aim high, but it also reflects the belief that learning should be an enjoyable and stimulating experience.

The school aims for academic excellence and standards of achievement are high, but Cartmel Priory School also offers an extensive variety of wider learning opportunities for example, house sports and house music, the annual ski trip, history and modern foreign language trips, sports clubs and science and engineering club.

It is a Church of England Academy Trust secondary school, one of only two in Cumbria, and believe that "Every child matters to God". The school does it's best to ensure the students fulfil their potential.
