Bassenthwaite Primary School and Little Ducklings Nursery (Part of Keswick MAT)

Bassenthwaite School is part of a small village community nestled below the eastern slopes of Skiddaw, 7 miles North of Keswick in the Lake District National Park. The stunning location of our school provides a truly inspirational environment in which to teach our students.We became an academy as part of the Keswick Multi Academy Trust in January 2018.

Our school encourages high standards of learning and behaviour whilst creating a warm, friendly and caring family environment for children from Nursery age through to Year 6.  We believe that a wide curriculum, tailored to the children’s interests and needs, encourages our pupils to develop a love of learning. We offer full wraparound care on site (8am until 5.30pm) and offer a variety of after school clubs each school term.

Ofsted visited our school in May 2016 and found our school to be ‘Good’ and described that our “outstanding aspects of the school’s provision identified at the previous inspection have been sustained. Pupils’ safety and welfare are of paramount importance to everyone and pupils feel and are safe in school. Pupils make an excellent contribution to the school through their positive attitudes to learning, their exemplary conduct and considerate behaviour towards each other. Their excellent social skills, well developed literacy and mathematical skills, and self motivation prepare them well for the next stage of their education.”
