Every child is as unique as their finger prints, every child's strengths, talents and individual little quirks are celebrated here at Grayrigg.
Our small numbers enable us to tailor learning to each individual child with every member of our Grayrigg family taking as much pride in the achievement of other's as they do in their own achievements.
The best way to understand our school is to see if for yourself. We would be incredibly proud to show you around. We are also running sessions for next year's reception children and would be happy if your child would like a taster of our small and friendly school environment.
