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.

Please contact Mrs Newton, Mrs Wallwork or Mrs Ashton via admin@stmarys-kl.cumbria.sch.uk if you wish to make an enquiry about a school place for your child in nursery or other classes. Telephone 015242 71334.

'Nurturing creative thinkers...' is our school motto and we hope to inspire our children to think and act thoughtfully, creatively and differently to tackle problems wisely and to look at the world with understanding, care and compassion.

Our children are in one of four houses, Wolves, Bears, Lions and Tigers. Throughout the year we have many interhouse challenges such as swimming, spelling bee, hockey, football, attendance and many more. We hope to provide a sense of community, identity, competition and opportunities to contribute as a collective as well as individuals.  Do you remember being in a house when you were in at school? #team #houses #school #identity #values

This is the first day of our school's Easter break and a special day, Good Friday. 

We pray, Dear God, On this busy day, we remember Jesus, Who died on a cross to show love for all the world and to bring hope to every situation. Help us share that love and hope with our families, our friends and our world.
