Freckleton C.E. Primary School is an "Aided " Church of England school for boys and girls from the age of 4 until 11 years of age. In 2001 it was awarded the Basic Skills Quality Mark and also a School Achievement Award. The motto of the school is "In fide scientia consistat" "Let knowledge be grounded in faith" and as such has close links to the Holy Trinity Church in Freckleton where the children attend services throughout the school year. The curriculum is broad and progressive but also gives priority to the acquisition of basic academic skills. The children are taught in a friendly and stimulating environment by caring and hardworking staff. Out of school activities are encouraged and a variety of these are run by staff throughout the year. Private music schemes in both woodwind and brass instruments plus the guitar are also available and these are run during and after school.

Type of school: Comprehensive
School category: Community

Carr Hill is a mixed comprehensive school for 11 to 18 year olds and serves the whole of the rural Fylde. Freckleton is in the catchment area for Carr Hill. The school is maintained by Lancashire County Council, possesses excellent purpose-built accommodation, and is set in extensive, landscaped grounds close to the centre of Kirkham.

Opened in 1957, the school admitted its first comprehensive intake in 1977 and has developed a good academic record: each year a large number of students leave the Sixth Form to enter colleges and university (including Oxford and Cambridge).

We expect students entering the school will wish to devote themselves to serious study, to conduct themselves in a polite manner at all times, and to take advantage of the many educational opportunities which the school has to offer.

Extracts from the Ofsted report October 2000

Kirkham Carr Hill is a good and effective school. Good teaching and pastoral support help students to make the most of themselves. They achieve good results and develop mature and responsible attitudes. Standards are good in the sixth form, which the school funds slightly generously, though its value for money is satisfactory. Leadership is very strong. The school is caring and well managed.
