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

ruskin grey

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 C Billington via admin@stmarys-kl.cumbria.sch.uk if you wish to make an enquiry about a school place for your child. Telephone 015242 71334.
