Thwaites School 

Thwaites Primary School Logo

Thwaites is a small rural school situated in an idyllic location on the edge of the Lake District, where the National Park meets the Irish Sea. Our school enjoys breathtaking views over the Duddon Estuary with Black Combe standing proudly above us. A stroll down to our local 'Fox Wood' or a visit to our nearby beach provides endless opportunities for our children to explore, first hand, the wonders of nature!

We currently have 71 pupils on roll (age 3-11 years) but what we lack in size we make up for with our warm, friendly and welcoming ethos. Our school logo of the rainbow was designed by our children and really seems to capture the feeling of our school. It symbolises our colourful, hopeful and energetic approach to teaching. We aim for our school to be a place children enjoy being part of as we believe a happy atmosphere will maximise the learning potential of each child.

Every child is known well by all the other pupils, teachers and staff. We have nurtured a kind and thoughtful ethos within the school, whereby the older children are encouraged to look out for the younger children. Meal times are shared, the high point of the week being our hot lunch day, which is planned, prepared and cooked by our own staff.

Our school focuses on celebrating the progress and achievements of each individual child in all areas. Such achievements may be academic, sporting, artistic or musical! We value good manners, thoughtfulness and a conscientious attitude.
