“Be happy. Learn. Be proud”

The school is situated in the Morton area, West of Carlisle. Our catchment area contains a mixture of private and social housing. We are immediate neighbours with Newlaithes Junior School, with whom we maintain good links.

The school was opened in 1965. There are two classes in each year group. The classrooms are grouped in pairs around the Hall, each pair having a separate entrance and its own toilet block. There is a separate computing suite for 15 children, a kitchen for cookery sessions, a library and break out areas for group work. The grounds include a tarmac play area, a
climbing frame known as ‘The Treehouse’, an adventure trail, ‘Quiet Area’ and an all year Multi Use Games Area. The Foundation Stage has a separate fenced area for outdoor play.

In September 2017 we opened our own nursery with its own outside area.
