About The Lantern Community Primary

Our School

The Lantern Community Primary School opened in 2004 and was built to cater for the children of families living on the western side of the city. 

The school has been carefully designed to be a focal point for the community.

Lying adjacent to the existing secondary school and very close to the Highfield Special School we are at the heart of the new community and enjoy far-reaching views of Ely Cathedral.  The position of the school has been ideal for establishing inclusion work with the adjacent schools.  Students from Ely College come to The Lantern School for work experience and children from Highfield join in with music and Literacy in one of our KS1 classes.  Highfield also use the school for work experience placements for their older students.
