Welcome to Langwathby C of E School website!
I hope that you will find all the information you require and that our website will help you to get a 'feel' for our big village school.
Our school sits at the centre of a large rural catchment area; we serve many villages and numerous small hamlets whilst only being a short drive from Penrith Town. We take children from Nursery (aged 3) to Year 6 (aged 11) and teach them across 5 classes. The school day runs from 8:50 to 3:30 and our privately run wrap-a-round care, Eden Explorers, offers childcare from 8am to 6pm everyday.
Our Christian ethos is reflected in how we support all the members of our learning community. We place great emphasis upon well-being and self-esteem, striving to nuture everyone so that they can be the very best version of themselves.
We pride ourselves on our commitment to the arts, using a topic based curriculum to deliver creative, hands-on learning experiences which are relevant, exciting and engaging. The financial support of our pro-active and enthusiastic parental support group (FOLS - Friends of Langwathby School) enables us to provide regular visits and experiences. For example we have several artists in residence each year and frequent trips to sites of historical and cultural significance.
Our friendly and dedicated staff team work hard to ensure that all our children feel safe and secure. We provide high-quality teaching which results in high academic standards. We are committed to meeting the individual needs of every child.
We are proud to part of the Rural Penrith Cluster- eleven local schools who work closely together to provide excellent primary education across the area.
If you have any further questions or wish to visit school please don't hesitate to contact us on the details above.
