About Gilsland C of E Primary School

Our school is situated in a beautiful village just on the border between Cumbria and Northumberland. We are lucky enough to have Hadrian's Wall right on our doorstep!

We take children from age 3 onwards- our nursery children are part of our Owl Class (EYFS and KS1) which means they are exposed to all the wonderful teaching and vocabulary that reception, Year 1 and year 2 are doing.

Our inclusive approach to education is at the heart of all that we do – we know how important it is to ensure every child is valued.
