Patterdale Church of England Primary School


Patterdale School is a Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School catering for children from three to eleven years of age.


The School has been in existence since 1873 but the buildings were modernized in 1970, 2003 and 2008. The School comprises two large classrooms (a Nursery/EYFS/Key Stage 1 Class, and a Key Stage 2 Class); a hall for sport, music and performances; a library, office and cloakroom area with disabled access; and a fully operational school kitchen. The School also has the use of a computer suite and teaching area, although this is currently being used as an Early Years centre by the EYFS class due to the current Covid situation.


The School is beautifully situated in the Lake District National Park at the head of the Ullswater Valley. It has extensive grounds to grass and tarmac for recreation and sport. There is a wooded area with broad leafed trees and a natural wild area containing grasses and wild flowers encouraging the habitat of natural wildlife.
