Meet the staff

We have an ever increasing number of staff who provide an invaluable service in making sure that the children are happy, safe and reaching their full potential.

In addition to the staff the school is proud of the pupils, governors and parents who all make a contribution to the running of the school.

Our ethos is to be aspirant for all.  In particular we have a passion for excellence in teaching and have for many years run teacher training with various partners including the University of Cumbria.  This passion has helped to get many aspirant teachers “Get into Teaching” and indeed has fostered strong relations with partners who share our vision.
