This page is for Year 7 students joining us in September and their parents.

Welcome to The Urswick School. For some of you this will be a new experience as you join our community for the first time. For others, children joining us in September will be following in a long line of family members who have been educated in this school.


Welcome from the Executive Headteacher Mr Brown

 Mr Brown, Executive Headteacher

Welcome to The Urswick School and I look forward to getting to know you and your child. It’s great news that your son or daughter are starting at our school and we look forward to working with you.

Believe and Achieve

These are exceptionally difficult times for us all. Urswick has remained open to some children everyday during this crisis, and has been setting work for others who are at home. This is a reflection of the dedication of our staff. Hopefully we can welcome everybody back in September and ensure your child has a successful start. Over our 500 year history, we have recovered from several plagues and a number of wars. I hope it inspires you to be joining one of the oldest schools in the country and that you will make your own piece of history.
