Solway Community School 

Solway Community School is an LA maintained 11-16, mixed Comprehensive school of approximately 125 pupils, proudly serving the coastal town of Silloth and its surrounding villages. Solway is part of the Cumbria Futures Federation along with Beacon Hill Community School and shares some curriculum and resources.

We are constantly seeking to improve and are committed to achieving the best for all our pupils, whatever their abilities.

At Solway, every child matters and we have the time and the skills to ensure that your child has the opportunity to achieve his or her potential. With a excellent computing, science and technology facilities and a spectacular sports hall, which is also open to the community, we are fully equipped to help your child develop as an individual. We provide all pupils with an enriching and exciting education which will prepare them for adult life.

  • Our small size makes us special for many reasons:
  • Your child soon gets to know all the staff and their way around;
  • Even more importantly, staff will know your child as an individual;
  • We personalise learning to meet your child’s particular needs;
  • The school is a friendly and pleasant place to learn;
  • Pupils are almost part of an extended family rather than an institution;
  • Older pupils look after the younger ones.
