Welcome to Summer Term at St Mary’s CE School

Located on the edge of Kirkby Lonsdale, our school takes advantage of being situated in the beautiful and historic market town in the Lune Valley. Kirkby Lonsdale is an idyllic place to live on the edge of Cumbria, Lancashire and North Yorkshire, and our school has a long tradition of high quality education in the area.

I think our school is a very special place and in discovering our school, we hope you will think the same.

It has been wonderful to work with Bob Sutcliffe to explore how we can represent our values through flowers. We have created art to explore our school values more deeply and to help us understand and recall our values. Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Trust and Perseverance. #values #church #school
