Welcome to Tatham Fells Primary School


Welcome to Tatham Fells CE (VC) Primary School.

We are a small Voluntary Controlled rural School located just outside Lowgill, in Lancashire. A stunning location, wonderful pupils, supportive parents and a dedicated staff all make for a superb school environment.

Situated on the edge of the hamlet of Lowgill in the Forest of Bowland, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, our catchment area extends over approximately a five mile radius. Families also choose to travel to us from further afield.

There has been a school in the parish of Lowgill for over 160 years. The Old School, which dates back to the 1880s, nestles behind the Church of the Good Shepherd about a half mile walk from our present school, which was opened in 1961.

As a small school, we have the opportunity to personalise our pupils learning experiences to ensure that every pupil is supported and guided in making the next steps in their learning. The school is in a Collaboration with Melling St Wilfrid CE Primary with a shared Headteacher and Bursar. We are also a member of the Lune Valley Small Schools Cluster, comprising ten schools - this ensures that we do not work in isolation and that there is an exchange of ideas & expertise and many opportunities to come together for inter-school activities.

Our school grounds are extensive, including a football pitch, adventure play area, playground and organic garden. There is a wildlife area, with views to the Lakeland hills.

Please take some time to look through the information here on the website to get a flavour of what we are about. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us. Mrs. Rebecca Mason our school Bursar will happily deal with all enquiries.
