Rockcliffe CofE Primary School Logo

Rockcliffe CE School is situated in the heart of the village of Rockcliffe, four miles outside Carlisle. The school serves the villages of Rockcliffe, Cargo, Todhills and the new Crindledyke Farm development. We provide an excellent learning environment for our children and the community. We offer Nursery Education each afternoon and a local mother-toddler playgroup on Monday and Thursday mornings led by a Teaching Assistant from the school.

We are a happy, friendly school with a strong Christian ethos based on respect, honesty, trust and forgiveness where your child is at the heart of all that we do. The staff and governors work together to provide the best possible start for your child. We have approximately 130 children in the school and nursery divided into five classes.

We have an after school club - Rocky's - which supports parents with after school care. This is in addition to after-school clubs and activities.

Our standards are high and we offer a wide range of learning opportunities to all including enrichment through extra-curricular activities, residential visits and community links. The school has close links with neighbouring schools and with Trinity School in Carlisle to which the majority of our children transfer at age 11.

The main school is open daily from 8.45am until 3.15pm.

Our Nursery is open from 12.15pm until 3.15pm

Playgroup runs from 9.30am until 11.30pm on a Monday and Thursday morning during term time.
