Lime House School was founded in 1899 and moved to its present location in Dalston (near Carlisle) in 1946.

The school is a fully independent co-educational boarding and day school providing an affordable and quality education for pupils aged three to eighteen.

Recognised as efficient by the Department for Education since 1930, the school was recently inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate when teaching was described as being good to outstanding and the quality of pastoral care, welfare and health and safety of the pupils was also described as outstanding.

The Headteacher, Mr N A Rice MA who has held this position since 1985 is a member of the Independent School’s Association. The school is owned by Mr Rice and Mrs Rice who is the Senior Mistress and the School Bursar, Mrs J Fisher.

Set in a rural environment where each child’s talents and potential are carefully nurtured, our curriculum encourages academic achievement alongside pupils’ sporting, cultural and personal development.

Our aim is simply to ensure that each pupil achieves his or her potential both academically and socially, each child being treated individually. They are cared for in a safe, rural environment and every attempt is made to ensure that they develop confidence and self esteem, but essentially, that they are happy. The happy child is often a successful one.

In this website we have tried to convey what is special about our school. If you have not visited, then we hope that after viewing the website and reading the prospectus you will want to come and see more of what we would provide for your child. You will be shown around the school, be able to meet the teachers, view school work, meet the pupils and enjoy a most pleasant and encouraging experience. To arrange a visit, simply contact the school and we can arrange a convenient time for you. Any prospective pupil is more than welcome to spend a taster period at the school.
