Finding the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. A good education can make all the difference to a child's future.
Lime House School – www.limehouseschool.co.uk – just south of Carlisle on the edge of the Lake District National Park, is an independent, co-educational boarding and day school which welcomes pupils, aged seven to 18, from all over the world.
Lime House School offers a rigorous academic and intellectual education which will challenge and engage your child. Supportive and nurturing in approach, the school empowers pupils to establish secure foundations for independent learning from which to launch their futures in tertiary education, and the careers of their choice.
The school has a wide and varied curriculum at both Primary and Secondary levels, with a dynamic range of subjects offered to Sixth Form. Pupils of all abilities are welcome, those with Special Education Needs are supported by a dedicated team of professionals.
Headteacher, Mary Robertson-Barnett, MA (Oxon), PGCE, says: "It is a privilege to lead a school of such vibrancy. The academic programme is rich and fulfilling, with pupils benefiting from tailored programmes, delivered by subject specialists, who enthuse our learners with their passion. The super-curricular opportunities inform the academic life of the school with a range of cultural, performance, and sporting activities.
"Pupils are guided in their growth as future global citizens and custodians, by their personal development tutors, and are encouraged to explore their dreams and define their path. Lime House School is a joyous and enriching place for all who are involved in our community."
The school's ethos is that learning should be integrated and fun, extending beyond the classroom and informing all we do.
The activities programme includes: sporting; music; art; photography; debating; environmental and strategic thinking. The school garden - a new initiative to support the school's ecological work - is thriving under the tender care of pupils who engage wholeheartedly with their beautiful surroundings. Weekends are structured, with pupils exploring diverse educational, cultural and fun filled experiences.
Lime House is a school of outstanding potential, its vibrancy and tolerance reflected in each of its pupils. Why not arrange a visit to see what we can offer your child?
