Welcome to Lum Head Primary School
Learning and growing together


Welcome to Lum Head Primary School’s website. We hope you find the contents of this website useful and informative.

We are a growing primary school with 250 children from Reception to Year 6, situated in beautiful grounds in the heart of Gatley in Stockport.  We are a friendly, welcoming school serving a diverse community.  We aim to work in close partnership with parents and carers.  We value the contributions of each child’s family and are committed to building strong links with our local community.

At Lum Head our passion for education means that we inspire our children to develop a love of learning that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. We are a caring, creative and dynamic school. We are very proud of our children and of our school.

The values expressed in our school vision are central to all we do.


At Lum Head, we care for every child in every way.

We aim to identify and nurture talent and we celebrate success.

      We strive to overcome all barriers in order to ensure a safe and inclusive education for all pupils.

We aim for each child to fulfil and extend their potential.

Most of all we aim for each pupil to enjoy a happy and successful childhood.


We hope that our website gives you a flavour of our school.  If you would like further details, or to make an appointment to visit the school, please contact the school office on 0161 428 7992 or email headteacher@lumhead.stockport.sch.uk.  We look forward to welcoming you to Lum Head.

If you are looking for a Reception place for September 2017 we would be delighted to show you around our lovely school.
