About Caldew School

Caldew School is a popular, rural 11-18 mixed comprehensive school situated south of the city of Carlisle with a catchment area that extends to the fringe of the Lake District. We have 1000 pupils on roll including a Sixth Form of 160. The school is heavily over-subscribed and the roll is steady. We have a good and improving track record of achievement at all examination levels, good resources and facilities and a rich programme of visits and extra-curricular activities. Our Ofsted inspection in June 2018 graded Caldew as ‘requires improvement’. However the inspection team noted that significant improvements had been made over the past two years and we are not complacent and we know that there areas where we need to do better.
