Arkholme C of E Primary School was built in 1877 with extensions built in 1961, 1989, and 2000. The school is now spacious and well equipped, with attractive grounds, caring for the academic, social, physical, artistic, cultural and spiritual needs of its children. We use the Village Hall for Physical Education and have the use of a large field adjacent to the hall.

The school accommodates up to 100 children aged between 4 and 11, who are grouped into four classes. There is also an Ofsted registered pre-school nursery attached to the school which takes children from the age of 3 years. Arkholme School is an Anglican primary school that caters for girls and boys between the ages of four and eleven. Most of the children live within the parishes of Whittington, Arkholme and Gressingham, although we do have a few children from farther afield.


The Ofsted registered Nursery, which is controlled by a Governors Voluntary Management Committee, is attached to the school and has places for a total of 16 children. The children can start to attend the term after their third birthday and funding is available through the local authority. The nursery children attend Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning between 9 am and 12.45 pm. A hot snack is available at a small extra charge. On a Thursday the nursery children combine with the Reception Children for a Physical Education lesson in the Village Hall.

The nursery is well resourced and has a secure outdoor play area.


We provide a broad, balanced curriculum to suit the needs of the children attending our school and use a variety of teaching methods. The National Curriculum is covered in all its aspects. The core subjects English, Mathematics, Science and ICT are challenging to the children at their particular level. The children are also involved in a wide range of activities in History, Geography, Technology, Art, Music, Physical Education and Religious Education.

Pupils are taught in 4 classes grouped according to age. Staff; regularly review the content of the curriculum, its development and its policies. The children follow programmes of study at the foundation stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.


The school offers a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, which take place at lunchtime and after school.

Music is very popular. There are three recorder groups and children are given the opportunity to play brass, woodwind and stringed instruments from year 4. Very quickly the children are able to join the school band and take The Royal School of Music external examinations.

In the area of sport children attend the school swimming club held at Carnforth Pool, attend Football club, Cricket club and we participate in inter-school competitions in all aspects of sport. The children also have the opportunity to attend the language Latin Minimus Club, train for cross country running, Chess, Choir and Computer clubs which are also very popular.
