Welcome to our website

Lifton Community Primary School is situated at the heart of a vibrant village set within beautiful countryside on the outskirts of Launceston.

At Lifton we aim high in every aspect of school life. The children are encouraged to develop their full potential and strive to become independent and inquisitive learners. We provide a creative and rich curriculum within a safe, stimulating environment. We are lucky to have a strong staff team who are talented and dedicated. We are very lucky to enjoy the benefits of extensive school grounds which offer two playgrounds, school field, environmental areas, garden and two adventure play areas.

We welcome visits to the school. Please make an appointment and we will be happy to show you our extensive facilities and learning environment.
