Cockermouth School 

Cockermouth School Logo

We are rightly proud of the academic achievements of our students but we understand that school is about far more than what happens in the classroom. We measure our success by what is achieved both inside and outside of lessons and the wide range of opportunities that life at Cockermouth School offers, be it academically, musically, on the sports field or on trips or visits, enables us to develop the full range of our students’ talents.

Our pastoral team are dedicated to helping every student maximise their potential whilst here.  We are proud to be a high-performing, truly comprehensive school serving a large catchment area in the north-west of Cumbria. Our school is popular and highly regarded and we value our place at the heart of our local community. We are delighted to welcome students from Cockermouth, the surrounding villages, and increasingly, from further afield.

We believe that this partnership, combined with a supportive relationship with parents, enables our students to succeed in every area of school life.

Our core values of aspire, enjoy, include, respect and community underpin everything that we do. We aim to be the best school we can be, endeavour to make the school experience enjoyable and inspiring, understand that everyone succeeds in different ways, respect the right of people to be different and believe in being ambassadors for the school within our community.
