Welcome to Borrowdale School!

Borrowdale School is a friendly, caring and very active school, with always lots going on. It is a school where everyone is valued and helped to achieve their best in all areas of development. Children are supported in becoming confident and independent young people who thrive on challenge and are motivated to learn.


I am extremely proud to be leading a team that is committed to the children's well-being and to providing the very best opportunities for all in our care. Staff, supported by a team of governors, work very hard to deliver a rich and exciting curriculum that is rooted in quality texts and uses the endless opportunities of the school's grounds and surroundings for meaningful learning and exploration.  We strongly believe in 'Learning Outside the Classroom' and have a well-established Forest Schools programme and lots of outdoor field trips.


Our maximum class size here at Borrowdale is around 15 pupils and we provide excellent staffing ratios in each class. This means that we get to know every pupil inside out and we are able to support individual progress - not just academic, but also social and emotional, alongside character development traits, to ensure that each child is fulfilling their potential.


Hopefully this website will give you a flavour of our school and you will find whatever you are looking for. Come and visit the school to find out more (virtually or in person), to see us in action and to meet our staff and children. A call to the school office on 017687 77686 is all that is needed to arrange this. We would look forward to welcoming you to our school, and to a happy and successful relationship with all our (new) children and families.
