Welcome to St Mary’s Church of England School – Kirkby Lonsdale



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. Whether you are a prospective parent or a parent of a child in school, welcome. It is with great pride that I introduce our school – I hope you find our website helpful in giving you and insight into St Mary’s. I think our school is a very special place and in discovering our school, we hope you will think the same.

We have always been keen to explore the concept of democracy with our children. With constituency boundaries changes, we have invited the candidates for Morecambe and Lunesdale to our @lizzicollinge came to answer questions from our Y6 children. Thank you Lizzi for taking time to talk to our children. We will be hopefully meeting other candidates before the election date on July 4th. On the election day, our children will be taking part in an election too. #election2024 #vote
