Cartmel Priory CofE School is a mixed, 11-16 secondary school and academy in Cartmel, Cumbria, England.[1]


The school was opened in 1958 on land given by Lord Richard Cavendish built with money from the Church and the local community. The school was officially opened on 15 October 1958 by Her Royal Highness, The Princess Margaret.

During 1988 as part of Cumbria County Council's The Way Ahead - Cartmel Priory School was one 13 out of the 44 schools in the county proposed to be closed. After a public meeting on the 26th of April which lasted nearly 12 hours The Way Ahead sub-committee recommended that all 13 schools be retained.
