We are a school that likes to celebrate success – at every level. The life of the school is driven by enthusiasm and a desire to achieve. We aim to bring learning alive, making it exciting and stimulating. We want to give our children a thirst for learning that continues with them throughout their future school experiences and lives. An essential ingredient for this to happen is teamwork. We view education as a joint venture involving everyone- children, parents, staff, governors and the wider community. We hope that we will be able to depend on your co-operation and support in this partnership hoping that we can provide the best for every child.


Well done Phoenix!

Pupil Parliament

Pupil Parliament
Four members of the School Council attended the first Lancaster & Morecambe Pupil Parliament event this month at the Vale of Lune Rugby Club. Fourteen schools attended and took part in workshops around the theme of campaigning.

The children had to also present their priorities for improvement in the local area which then led to a vote over lunch. As a parliament, they have voted to campaign for more clubs and activities for young people. The next event will take place in January with children working on their campaign to bring about change!

Y6 at Tower Wood

In October, Year 6 children visited Tower Wood Education Centre on the shores of Lake Windermere. As part of their experience, they took part in a range of activities, some more challenging than others. They needed good team work to get the water flowing and courage to get around blindfold. It looks like lots of fun.
