Welcome to Thwaites School

I am very proud to be the headteacher of Thwaites School, the small school with a big heart.  Surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty: the Lake District, Black Combe, the Duddon Estuary, we couldn’t be in a more perfect geographic location to show our children the wonderful world around them.


We are a friendly, caring school with high expectations for all our pupils. Our children are encouraged to explore, discover and question through a range of exciting learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom. The staff endeavour to provide a calm and stimulating environment where good behaviour and mutual respect is modelled by everyone and where everyone is valued.


Our school motto, ‘Enjoy Learning, Achieve Success’ encapsulates what we’re all about. We want our children to come to school and enjoy every aspect of the Thwaites experience. Through enjoying their learning, we know that our children will go on to achieve personal success.

 Our doors are always open, so if you would like to arrange a visit and see for yourself, give the office a call and arrange an appointment.

We look forward to meeting you,

Mr Jordan Emms
