Situated in the heart of the Lake District, Borrowdale School's fantastic grounds and surroundings offer endless opportunities for learning and exploration. Learning should be fun and relevant. We strongly believe in 'Learning Outside the Classroom' and have a well-established Forest Schools programme and many outdoor field trips.
Our curriculum excites and stimulates children's imaginations and creative thinking. Pupils learn within the contexts of meaningful quality texts on which first-hand and practical experiences are based. The strong cross-curricular approach is further enhanced by themed-days and numerous other events. This makes our curriculum relevant and memorable because pupils understand the point to their learning and enjoy their education.
Our curriculum goes beyond statutory requirements; it is full and rich, and aims to equip the children with the knowledge, skills and values to successfully tackle the challenges of their future lives. It inspires the children to work hard, to persevere and to aim for the highest possible standards.
