North Lakes School 

At North Lakes School we are committed to creating a happy and safe place for children and adults to learn together, valuing each other, enjoying school and achieving our best. North Lakes School is sited on the west of Penrith in a pleasant suburban setting.

The children enjoy extensive playing fields with a trim trail, a wild life area and large playgrounds, both at the front and back of the school. The school is well resourced, especially in Computing. The school was originally built of open plan design, but there has been extensive remodelling in recent years. There are nine classrooms, including the strategically resourced base.

The large Computing Lab has access for 30 pupils and data projection facilities this is supported with 32 mobile laptops and 16 iPads to support learning across the curriculum. There is also a well furnished practical area which is used by all classes for Art and Craft, Design and Food Technology. A central library serves the whole school with books being constantly updated. A large Hall not only gives good space for P.E but is also used for dining and assemblies.

Local Offer


We are a very inclusive school and are very proud of the success and achievements of all our pupils. Those pupils who experience difficulty in some areas of the curriculum are helped by the provision of work in their own class, which is matched to their own needs and abilities. If your child has a specific learning need then they might receive further help from specialist support either within or beyond the school. Should this be the case for your child, we would discuss this fully with you first. Where necessary, we are able to ask for further guidance and support from the LA Specialist Services and the Educational Psychologist.
