Our Ethos

Small School, Big Opportunities

Step inside our village school and into a haven for learning. Set in magnificent surroundings, Bassenthwaite Primary School provides a unique learning environment which, whilst preserving its legacy from the 19th century, is resourced and equipped to deliver an action packed stimulating curriculum into the 21stcentury.

We aim to present exciting challenges and enriched experiences. Wherever possible we maximise our own external environment creatively to fulfil sporting and curriculum needs. Each child benefits from an excellent child/teacher ratio and is supported to develop his or her personal academic potential.

A very caring family ethos prevails allowing all our children to thrive emotionally and develop good self-esteem and interpersonal skills.

We link with other small schools in the area to provide a comprehensive programme of activities such as outdoor pursuits, residential urban visits, sporting fixtures and theatre visits.
