Schools and Education
The Diocese of Carlisle has 104 schools throughout Cumbria from Barrow-in-Furness to Bewcastle and Nicholforest, from St Bees Head to Stainmore. We offer advice and support on improving academic standards, recruiting headteachers, school buildings, governance and admissions, collective worship, religious education and a school’s Christian ethos.
Our education team is based in our diocesan offices, and includes specialists in school buildings, governance and admissions, finance and academies. Their work is overseen by the Carlisle Diocesan Board of Education.
We believe the distinctively Christian nature of our schools enables children to flourish in all respects, including achieving academic excellence and fulfilling their individual God-given potential.
