The Lancaster School
Success for today; preparation for tomorrow.

Our school has Foundation Status and was opened in 1974 on the site of the old RAF Skellingthorpe and the name was chosen because Lancaster bombers flew from here. The school is one of several nursery, infant, junior and primary schools within the Birchwood area, with a mixture of owner-occupied and local authority housing. The local community is well served with public services and health care.

The Lancaster School is housed in a two storey building (the small upper storey currently being used as the IT suite), with a staff room, administration block and 7 classrooms in 3 wings radiating from the central hall, a dedicated library, a self-contained outside play area, with access for the children to bikes, trikes and scooters, as well as climbing frames and other play equipment. The school also has a Community Room from which we run a Breakfast Club, Cookery Club as well as adult and community courses.
On leaving The Lancaster School at age 7, there is a choice of several junior schools, although the majority of our pupils transfer to Birchwood Junior School. We work very closely with Birchwood Junior School to ensure a smooth transition for our Year 2 children. The Lancaster School works closely with several agencies and services within the local community, including Sure Start, Birchwood Library and St Luke’s and St Martin’s Church.
