Learning and Growing Together


Let our pupils tell you about Thursby School- please view the powerpoint presentation to see what children think of Thursby Shcool

A warm welcome to families and friends from Thursby Primary School. We are a happy, friendly and thriving school set in the beautiful village of Thursby on the outskirts of Carlisle. We currently have 112 pupils on roll, of which 12 are part time Nursery. 


Our children are an asset to school and the community. We have a dedicated team of staff, with a variety of skills and talents, who value every child. We offer a safe and caring environment, where we value and develop the whole child. Every child matters and every child is treated individually and as a team. We have so much to offer all children, from active learning, including outdoor learning and wellbeing set alongside excellent behaviour and positive attitudes to learning as a priority to successful outcomes and knowledgeable children. We have built up solid foundations through our core values of: Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Teamwork and Positivity. 


Our children are very well educated by our skilled and talented staff team, who are always available to parents and work together for successful achievements of our children.  


Our families are a great asset to Thursby School, they actively engage with school life and our amazing PFA fundraises extensively for all our children. 


We hope our website helps you find out more about us, and we encourage you to view our 'Thursby Primary' Facebook page to see all the great events, workshops, visits and fun practical learning that takes place at Thursby School.

We are here to support you in any way we can.
