Great Corby Primary School 

We are a community primary school and nursery established in Victorian times with a long tradition of seeking to provide the best in education for the children attending the school.  We enjoy what must be one of the most beautiful locations of any school in Cumbria, situated by Corby Beck, where it emerges from a wooded gill just above us – a natural environment we try to make the most of in the curriculum.  We are constantly updating the school building, the most recent development being the creation of a withdrawal room and upgraded cloakroom areas.  The school has a hard play area, a newly developed timber trail and a grassed area. The outdoor area for the Foundation stage and nursery has been re designed for all year round access.

The nursery runs alongside Reception every day catering for children from 3years old, children can attend for up to 5 terms. We have a daily Before and After school club which runs five days a week and is very popular and a Mothers and Toddlers group which meets once a week. We admit children in September each year provided that they are four years old before September 1st.  More information about these initiatives can be found further on in this prospectus.
