Lime House School
Founded in 1899, Lime House School is a fully independent co-educational boarding and day school for pupils aged 3–18. There is an equal proportion of boarders and day pupils. The School lies eight miles from Carlisle and is located close to the Lake District National Park. The school’s rural environment is entirely safe for pupils. Small class sizes ensure that there are no more than 20 pupils in any class.
A dedicated care team and an on-site medical care ensure that pupils are well cared for. Parents receive full reports twice yearly, while immediate progress reports can be provided upon request. In 2011, CReSTeD inspected and registered the School’s dyslexic unit.
The Junior and Senior Schools
Lime House follows the National Curriculum, with pupils being prepared for Key Stage 1 and 2 tests. All pupils are prepared for entry to the Senior School, which ensures continuity in the curriculum. Each pupil is offered a wide range of subjects for study to GCSE level, while the majority of pupils enter the sixth form to study for A-levels.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, the Engineering Education Scheme and the Open University’s Young Applicants in Schools Scheme (YASS) are just three examples of the wide range of activities and initiatives which students can engage themselves in.
Scholarship and allowances
Allowances are available to overseas students.
