Henry Cowell a yr10 pupil is taking part in a one day 150 mile bike ride from Walney to Whitby on 12th September 2020. His friend, Felix (12yrs) who is also riding, is an Ambassador for CALM - one of the 3 charities the group are raising funds for.

There are 8 riders in total (apart form Henry and Felix the others are adults) and you can read the full story here....... Please share far and wide:…

Thanks very much..
Has anyone received an appointment time to collect GCSE results please?
As a former parent and now former friend of the school I would like to express my disgust that the school offered no comment or condolences with regard to a long serving member of staff who recently passed away . Mrs Bird was a much loved member of the school community devoting many years of service to this school . Not only did she show patience, compassion kindness and understanding to those she taught but was a caring Pastoral Head. She held a totally unique position in having been a former pupil, a parent of students, a governor and member of staff . What closer connection to a school could you have? She was part of the 'old school ' staff who were the real heart of this school. Sadly it now seems to be a very different place
Thank you all for everything you’ve done this week, and for hand delivering work packs on a Saturday. That’s going above and beyond.

We appreciate everything you do for our children.
To all working & supporting at Cartmel Priory School. Thank you so much for the hard work, determination & commitment you have showed, not just through these incredibly difficult recent times, but for the many years you have educated my 3 children. So sad that my youngest has left you today under such circumstances as he was keen to show you his.

Hello Cartmel....

Just a quick little post to say a big big THANK YOU to whichever kind person found my bracelet on Tue/Wed this past week. My family had hired a cottage in Cartmel last week, and without realising it I'd lost my silver charm bracelet walking into the village. Thank you to the very decent and honest person who must have spotted it and put it on the garden wall for me to find. Regardless of its expense it has great sentimental value and I'm really really chuffed you were honest. Whoever you are I hope you're reading this.....THANK YOU!! So lovely to know that there's still decent people round. ☺ xx
🏏We are looking to run All Stars Cricket Junior Activators sessions to support the development of students aged 13-17, and offer them the opportunity to co deliver the All Stars Cricket programme at a local cricket club. Please pass on the link to the survey to all your students 👏

This week year 9 students enjoyed a very exciting biology lab practical, extracting DNA from kiwi fruit, enabling them to see the actual blueprint to life!


In September, the English department launched an exciting and creative project with year 7. The aim of the project was to share as much knowledge of books as possible by creating a diverse range of informative and artistic pieces of work. We were blown away by the plethora of words read and loved by our students - the standard of work produced was exceptionally high and imaginative. Well done to all of year 7 for a fantastic start to English at CPS. Keep reading!
Miss Eason, Mrs Ayrton & Miss Brown.


Year 7 have taken part in the International Peace Poster competition through the Lions again this year. The competition raises awareness on important issues. We would also like to thank the Lions for their donation towards art resources.

To celebrate National Storytelling Week, this week, all students have enjoyed participating in a whole school Story Relay! A short story titled The Mystery of Room 12 written by female, American-born English author of children’s mystery fiction Robin Stevens was split into five parts. During morning registration each day students have listened to a thought provoking instalment of the story, read and recorded by Student Librarian, Amos R (11CJ). The intriguing plot concluded today with the mystery resolved by budding young detective Jamie. I think you would agree an ideal opportunity to promote the oral tradition of storytelling; the very first way of communicating life experiences and the creative imagination.
Mrs Lloyd, School Librarian.
