Year 7 student feedback

We have asked our Year 7 students to provide some thoughts on their Cockermouth School experience.  There is a selection of their work and the answers that they provided ahead of this year’s transition here for Year 6 students to look at.

Student Information and Admission Forms

Please find here a copy of our Welcome to Cockermouth School information pack, which contains much of the information that you and your child will need to know before joining us here at Cockermouth School.

There is also here a copy of the forms that you will need to download, complete and send to us before your child starts in September. Please complete and return these by 30 June 2020 either by...

·         completing electronically and emailing to (we advise password-protecting first), or

·         printing and posting the completed forms to the Data Assistant, Cockermouth School, Castlegate Drive, Cockermouth CA13 9HF

If you are unable to use either of these methods, please contact us as soon as possible on and we will arrange an alternative.

School Uniform Orders

You can download a Uniform Order form for The Toy Shop, which is the main supplier of our branded uniform, here.  Please do not return your order form to us – all orders should be returned to The Toy Shop by email,, or to the shop at 72 Main Street, Cockermouth, which is planning to re-open on Monday 15 June.
