About Cartmel Priory CofE School

Cartmel Priory CE School is a special and unique place to teach. It is a small, rural 11-16 school in an idyllic setting with around 320 students on roll where students and staff have created a very caring school community. It is one of two Church of England secondary schools in Cumbria, both of which are non-selective convertor academies. Our intake is fully comprehensive. We have, therefore, students of all abilities and social backgrounds, but with lower than average levels of deprivation overall (as measured by % FSM). The school has consistently been amongst Cumbria’s highest performing schools for Value
Added and, more recently, Progress 8. From the DfE Performance Tables 2019, Cartmel Priory CE School is the top performing school in South Lakeland.
