About Us

Welcome to Crosby-on-Eden

Enjoying achieving; achieving enjoyment.

Hello and Welcome to Crosby-on-Eden Primary School’s website.

We are a small village school situated in Cumbria, just outside Carlisle. Our four classes are made up of mixed-aged pupils who live in the surrounding areas of Low Crosby, Brampton, Linstock, Irthington and beyond.

We are proud of our school and everyone in it. Every day we try to remind ourselves of the good we can do, especially when we work as a team.

We hope that you like our new website. Please enjoy having a look through all of the pages to find out more about us.
