We are very proud of our school. Within its secure and friendly environment, we work hard to attain high standards of achievement and behaviour. Each child is recognised as an individual and as such is valued and encouraged to develop to their full potential.


As a Catholic Primary School we accept children from 3 -11 years old.  We welcome both Catholic and non Catholic children.  We create a culture of learning where children are happy, enthusiastic, motivated and supported by a committed and professional staff.


A strength of our School is the family atmosphere. Working closely as a team the staff are responsible for the well-being and happiness of every child throughout the day.


Choosing the right school for your child is a very important decision. Reading this prospectus is just one part of making that decision. The prospectus sets out to provide you with an introduction to our school. If you would like further information please do not hesitate to contact us. A visit to our school is the best way to get to know us   and we encourage you to come and gain your own impressions of our school community.
