Key Stage 3

           It is important that our students enjoy school and feel cared
           for and supported. We believe passionately that our success
           as a school depends on ensuring that each student is
           respected, feels confident and understands and supports

           our core values and works with us on striving to achieve
           them every day.

                                                  It is equally important that our students
                                                  maximise their potential, both inside and
                                                  outside of the classroom. At Cockermouth
                                                  School we place high expectations on our
                                                  students and we celebrate success. This
                                                  can be about achieving excellence, but it is
                                                  always about students being the very best
                                                  that they can be.
