You can’t have high expectations of behaviour ISSUE 435 | 19 SEPTEMBER 2019 | 23


At Cockermouth School, our staff bust these myths (and many others) every day, because we believe that every child can succeed with the right level of support and challenge.


So, if you’re looking at choosing a secondary school for next year and


you want to find out more about how we achieve these exceptional results and make sure that every student is cared for and supported, come along to our Open Evening on Thursday 26th September.


As Ben Stokes, an ex-student of ours, demonstrated so impressively – never tell anyone at Cockermouth School that something is impossible!
