With a caring Christian ethos, we aim to provide a safe and happy environment which allows every child the opportunity to fulfil their potential and make a valuable contribution to the academy and the wider community. Our school is situated alongside St. Patrick’s Church. As Christianity is central to our teaching, there are strong links between the church and the school which we continue to build, through weekly school service in church, as well as occasional services lead by children. Links are also forged through social and fund raising occasions. The Grandparent’s Afternoon Tea and the long established Summer Fair are just two examples. We have an excellent Messy Church which takes place every other month. We recognise the historic foundations of the church and school, and we continue to preserve and develop its religious character.
