Welcome to Upperby Primary School. It is a privilege to be head of such an amazing school. I really appreciate the welcome and support I have received from our children, parents and the whole school community since I started at the school.
Our school serves the south of Carlisle. It has recently been extended and is now a two form entry school, with 416 children currently attending. We place high priority on ensuring our children feel happy and safe in an inspiring environment.
Our experienced teaching staff are committed to providing a stimulating and creative curriculum within a nurturing environment. We place great importance on academic excellence and ensuring we can develop aspirations for all our children, so that they are able to achieve and be the best that they can be. We enrich our children’s education through a wide range of activities, such as a school choir, music tuition, visitors and trips. Children in Key Stage 2 are able to attend a range of residential experiences. We are an inclusive school meeting the differing needs of children.
Upperby school is such a special place where children are nurtured and their skills developed through a rich curriculum.
I hope our website gives you a flavour of our school.
If you would like to visit please do not hesitate to make an appointment, I would love to show you around our school.
