Welcome to the website of Captain Shaw's C of E Primary School in Bootle, Cumbria.

We hope you enjoy looking around our website and that you get a flavour of what makes us a special place for children to learn and grow.

Here at Captain Shaw’s we pride ourselves on providing a fun packed, activity driven curriculum with a Christian ethos that not only educates but enthuses our children.

At Captain Shaw’s we understand that some of our best learning takes place outside of the classroom and often when we don’t even realise we are learning!

At Captain Shaw’s we educate, develop, craft, create, hone and fine tune the future. But beyond all that we have fun! Some days we even laugh out loud (all at the same time)!

Here’s what Ofsted had to say about us….

The children ‘possess excellent social skills which contribute to their outstanding behaviour and positive attitudes to others’.

‘On leaving Captain Shaw’s, pupils are confident independent and self-assured young people’.

If we sound like the school for your children, please do get in touch; we would love to talk to you.
