Welcome to Kirkland C of E Academy
"We lift our eyes to the hills" Ps 121
Our small, rural school is located by the village of Kirkland, near Rowrah, 3 miles outside of Frizington and 10 miles from Cockermouth, just off the main A5086 road. We are surrounded by open countryside and beautiful views across to the Ennerdale hills, providing us with an inspirational environment for outdoor learning.
The school's outside area includes: a large field, an enclosed sports area/playground, an outdoor area and a separate nursery outdoor space.
We offer a warm, welcoming, caring environment, often commented upon by visitors to the school, and our expectations of learning and behaviour are high.
Our curriculum is ambitious, broad, balanced and carefully designed to ensure that our children gain the necessary knowledge and skills to move successfully onto their next stage of education; whilst deepening their knowledge and understanding of their own locality.
We cater for children aged from 2-11 years, offering a range of extra-curricular activities, breakfast club and wrap around care.
We warmly welcome you to come and visit us and meet our friendly team of staff; just contact us to make an appointment.
