Slyne-With-Hest St Luke's Church of England Primary School

Listen, learn, love and laugh as part of God's family


Welcome to Slyne-With-Hest, St Luke's, Church of England Primary School.

Welcome to our school website and our school. Slyne-with-Hest St Luke's CE Primary School is a Church of England Primary school situated in the lovely village of Hest Bank, approx 3 miles north of Lancaster. We have 221 children on roll, aged 4 to 11.

The school prides itself on its caring and happy atmosphere. Children entering Slyne-with-Hest St. Luke's will grow together in a school that sets high standards. We aim to provide a stimulating, happy and caring Christian environment, in which you will feel confident and where your children will flourish. The Diocesan Inspection of September 2016, which graded the school outstanding in all areas, said : 'The school, through its distinctive Christian character, is outstanding at meeting the needs of all learners.'


Our dedicated and professional staff promote self confidence, self assurance and self discipline, but take care to couple this with excellent teaching, continuous monitoring of progress and consultation between pupils, teachers and parents. This is why our school has a well earned reputation for fulfilling the potential of our pupils to the full, whilst fully encouraging and nurturing those who develop less quickly.


The Ofsted inspection of January 2022 said: "Pupils, including children in the early years, thrive in the motivating environment that leaders have created. They said that it is easy to make friends. Pupils feel safe and happy at school. They said that adults care about them and will listen to them if they have any concerns or worries. Pupils live up to the high expectations that the headteacher and staff have of them. Pupils are eager to learn. They achieve well in a range of subjects. The school’s motto, ‘Listen, learn, love and laugh as part of God’s family’, is at the heart of all that the pupils do".There is a link to the full report via the school information tab.
