Welcome to Penruddock Primary School.


We are a busy but friendly school located along the A66 between Penrith and Keswick just outside the Lake District National Park. 


At Penruddock we appreciate the importance of your child’s formative years at school and strive to create a setting that is  warm, welcoming and supportive whilst challenging children to become independent life-long learners. Our school vision is:


A caring community where every child is nurtured and valued,

empowered and inspired to achieve.


Penruddock Primary School is a small rural school. Children are motivated to achieve their best in a caring environment where staff and pupils show mutual respect and enjoy exploring their learning journey together.  Teachers, pupils and families form excellent positive relationships, and work in partnership to achieve high standards together. Smaller class sizes further strengthen the relationship between teacher and pupil and enable our skilled and dedicated staff to help children make the best possible progress. Learning is exciting and fun at Penruddock.
