We aim to inspire every child to reach further than they thought they could

Teachers use questions skilfully to assess pupils’ learning throughout lessons. Pupils discuss their ideas and learn from each other. Classrooms are organised well and the content and timing of activities are planned effectively.

Extract from our Ofsted Report 2015, in which the school was rated - GOOD.

Start Small, Think Big

The pursuit of excellence

Our small size enables us to ensure no child is invisible, but it doesn’t stop us from thinking BIG.

We aim for the sky, inspiring every child to reach further than they ever thought they could and to look beyond what they already know.

We are small enough to ensure every child has the opportunity to try everything, no-one is ever left behind!

A holistic approach

Helping every child to achieve

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.

Visits for new starters

The best way to understand our school is to see if for yourself. We would be incredibly proud to show you round. 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.

Grayrigg have really helped my son settle into his first year in education. We were a little nervous of how Joel would respond to a classroom situation, being the youngest at the school and very single minded! We needn’t have worried, the school has been excellent and we have appreciated the difference a small school can bring by really knowing our child.
