The school is situated in the village of Burgh by Sands, about 6 miles west of Carlisle. It has a catchment area covering the villages of Burgh, Beaumont, Kirkandrews on Eden, Monkhill, Hosket Hill, Moorhouse, Longburgh and the neighbouring villages and hamlets. The school is surrounded by extensive playing fields and has a dedicated play area. It has magnificent views over the Scottish hills, the Lake District fells, the North Pennines and Solway. The children get a real sense of the rural community in which it is situated with agricultural land opposite and adjacent to the school premises.
