"Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, but to be young was very heaven!"

Head Teacher’s Welcome


Head Teachers Welcome“Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, but to be young was very heaven.” Wordsworth

Welcome to our happy school. We hope that you can get a sense of its energy, ambition and ethos from this website. Grasmere School is a small, church, nursery and primary school in the heart of The Lake District.

This is a human-scale community. All the children and staff know each other well, and every individual plays a vital part in the life of the school. Our aim is to develop both character and academic understanding. We have high expectations of every child, and know that potential is infinite.

Learning makes full use of our glorious location. We also involve village community members, who provide us with all sorts of expertise. Underpinning the school are our strong, caring relationships and a shared zest for life and learning. We believe that children (and staff) who are secure and happy are confident to question, explore and learn.

Hopefully you will find the answers to many of your questions on this site. If you are interested in finding out more, do get in touch. Our children and staff would love to show you around.
