Welcome to Lum Head Primary School, Gatley
Diverse Nurturing Aspirational 


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

We are a thriving primary school with 300 children from Reception to Year 6, situated in beautiful grounds in Gatley Village in Stockport.  We pride ourselves in being welcoming to all and playing an active part in our local community.  We serve a diverse community and embrace every opportunity to celebrate this diversity.  Our families are central to our school’s success and we create as many opportunities as possible to work in close partnership with parents and carers in order to celebrate their children’s achievements.  


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 have the highest expectations of our children and encourage them to aim high too.  We provide many opportunities for active and creative learning and to make the most of our extensive outdoor area. 


We are very proud of our children and of our school and are delighted that our strengths were recognised by Ofsted in our inspection of 2019. 

This is a thriving school with genuine warmth and a strong sense of teamwork between pupils and staff. Relationships are strong and there is a shared purpose across all areas of the school.’

‘Strong values of mutual respect are evident throughout the school. Adults successfully convey high expectations that pupils adopt in all that they do.’
‘Pupils are exceptionally well behaved in and outside of lessons. They take responsibility to self-regulate, are highly motivated and keen to learn. They are extremely engaged in their learning and work well with each other, and independently.’


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  We look forward to welcoming you to Lum Head Primary School, Gatley.
