Welcome to Caldew School


Caldew School opened in September 1959 and over the last 50 years our pupils, past and present have earned a enviable reputation throughout Cumbria for the quality of their work, their self confidence and strength of purpose.

The school caters for 1000 pupils aged 11-18 years and we offer a wide range of courses to match pupils diverse strengths and interests. This is supported by our Personal Tutors who strive to give good guidance and support to each pupil. 

 A wide range of extra curricular activities are on offer including sport, music, drama and Young Enterprise and activities outside school play a very important part in the culture of our school. We encourage a planned programme of trips and visits which bring a sense of reality to learning in the classroom.

About us

We have high expectations of our students just as their expectations of Caldew School will be. Whether they are with us for one or two years, have been here since Year 7, or are new to the school we want the Sixth Form to be a partnership between students, parents and teachers which leads to continuing development and success for every individual.

As a member of the Sixth Form every student acts as a role model for younger pupils in the school. This means your appearance; behaviour and attitude to learning must be of the highest standards at all times. If you cannot match these expectations then Caldew Sixth Form is not the place for you. However, if you do meet these expectations we will ensure that you will be ready to succeed in the next stage of your life, whether that is at University or in the world of work.
