Why Join Us?
Derwentwater is a force for good in our community. It is friendly, welcoming to families and is focused on turning out well-rounded, confident children. Parent
Our passionate team of teaching and support staff go the extra mile to ensure that every child is valued, inspired and engaged. Each member of staff is highly experienced, and many have subject specialisms, so that all pupils learn from experts in their field.
Our pupils have their own unique talents and ambitions. Through our broad and rich curriculum, we nurture and expand these, encouraging every child to achieve success, whether in the classroom, the art room, on the stage or on the sports field. At our school opportunity matters. Sport, music and drama are all fully inclusive and pupils are encouraged to participate in all spheres of school life, whatever their ability.
Our remarkable school grounds boast an edible garden, well-resourced play areas and extensive playgrounds, providing an exceptional outdoor learning environment for our pupils to thrive.
We are fiercely ambitious for all our pupils and strive to provide them with the skills, knowledge and experiences to build strong foundations for the future, seize opportunities with confidence and have high aspirations.
We actively engage with parents and the wider community, as we recognise the importance of encompassing the richness of diversity and culture into our school.
We ensure our pupils are exposed to a wide range of experiences beyond the classroom to develop their character, skills and values so that they can become model citizens who thrive during primary school and beyond.
