“Let your light so shine before others that they may see your good works” (Matthew 5:16)

Secondary Education

Our children leave Primary school and generally attend one of the two schools in Penrith;  Ullswater Community College or Queen Elizabeth Grammar School

 Year 6 children and parents make their choice during the Autumn term with the applications closing on October 31st.

We have excellent links with both schools and the children participate in a number of transition activities and events to ensure they make the very best start to the next phase of their education.  

If you have any questions or concerns about moving to Secondary school or support with application process, please speak to our Year 6 teachers or a member of our school leadership team.
