Welcome to High Hesket Church of England School


Welcome to High Hesket School, High Hesket, Carlisle.  We are a Church of England School committed to the Christian principles which permeate everything we do.

We are a very happy school which is at the heart of our supportive village community.  We pride ourselves on being a traditional village school which, at the same time, is dynamic and forward thinking.

I believe that the primary years of a child's education are the most important and certainly the most exciting. I feel privileged to be part of the process that provides the opportunities for children to grow and flourish.

Tom Palmer - Author visited our school on Monday, 6th June 2016

We were delighted to win a visit from Tom, who writes children's books themed on football, rugby and World War 1.

He spent the day talking to the children about his books.  He autographed books which the children purchased.
