Back to School 2017 - photo gallery


Proud parents are celebrating as their children start school across Cumbria this week.

Families are invited to share their memories of that special first day as the 2017/18 academic year kicks off.

Whether it is your four-year-old's first day at 'big' school or year seven starting secondary, share your photographs as classes resume across the county.

Yesterday hundreds took time to share their pictures with the News & Star.

We intend to publish special photo galleries on our website - - and a selection in the newspaper each day.
