Welcome to Arkholme C.E.Primary School - An Outstanding School

Arkholme Church of England Primary School is a very happy and caring school with a strong family atmosphere and Christian ethos, that serves the communities of Arkholme, Gressingham and Whittington. We currently have 67 children on role including Nursery, which are organised into four classes.

Standards are high and all members of the school community are committed to ensuring the very best outcomes for all children.

Headteacher's message


I am very proud to be the headteacher of the successful collaboration of Arkholme C.E  and Yealand C.E. Primary Schools.

Arkholme is a vibrant, happy school and everyone works hard to ensure that everyone can achieve their very best within a caring and supportive environment, based on Christian values

Our children develop a love of learning, are well motivated, enjoy themselves and take a pride in their school. Our maintained nursery ensures children have a fantastic start to learning in school and when the time comes, children are fully prepared for transition to secondary school. We value academic and personal success and all pupils are encouraged to fulfill their potential and develop their diverse range of talents. We build a strong community, which supports all pupils and is sustained by the partnership with the church.

Our talented, caring staff have high expectations and work hard to build strong partnerships with parents. We believe that where that partnership is strong and supportive all our pupils flourish.

Whether you are already a parent or considering sending your child to Arkholme, I hope this Website gives you an insight into the unique nature of our school and the life your child will enjoy here. Choosing your child’s school is one of the hardest decisions that parents can make. There are many questions you will want to ask and we hope that this website will give an insight into the many aspects of school life and will help you to make that decision. Please contact the school office if you would like to make an appointment to visit.

With my very best wishes,


Mrs Joy Ingram
