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

ben greenp

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

Please contact Mrs S Lyall, our School Administrator or Mrs C Billington, our School Business Manager, in our school office (015242 71334), if you would like to know more about our school.  I extend a warm welcome to you from St Mary’s Church of England School.

Sustainability Week

10 th January 2020

We have had a STEAM Week (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) week.  The theme was ‘Sustainability’ and each class has explored this in their own way. From Gliders, bike racks, recycled fashion wear, buildings, objects, and animals, they have all thought about the concept of sustainability. What an inspiring week.
