Hello! Firstly, I would like to welcome you to Thwaites School - the small school with a big heart. I am incredibly proud to be the headteacher of Thwaites School and alongside my staff, we are immensely proud of our little school. Although a busy school with lots of learning and exploring taking place, we are very friendly and welcoming. We are situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty - nestled in between the Lake District and the Duddon Estuary - and we try to use our surroundings to enhance areas of our curriculum. To have some of the most stunning hills, fells, mountains and lakes on our doorstep is an incredible resource! We believe that all children deserve the chance to succeed, regardless of their starting points. I want our children to be the best version of themselves and due to our small school setting, we take the time to get to know each individual child on a personal level. We talk to the children, listen to them, use their ideas and interests to help create a curriculum that they can enjoy. Our school slogan, 'Enjoy learning, achieve success' is at the heart of everything we do. We want all children to come to school, enjoy their time in education and ultimately go on to succeed in their chosen paths.
