What the school says...

We are a small successful family orientated, Catholic Primary School on the outskirts of Atherstone. Our small classes enable us to give our children that little more attention than in schools with 30 as a standard class size. We seek to provide an excellent education for all who choose our school and welcome all to apply for a place in our school. In November 2012 we were judged a good school by Ofsted of which we are very proud. The inspectors said that, 'Teaching is typically good and sometimes outstanding.' and that 'Behaviour is good in lessons and exemplary around the school, and pupils feel safe.' The children said about our school, 'We trust our teachers. They make us feel safe and important.' We have a warm and welcoming environment, where all children are treated as individuals and encouraged to achieve their own personal best. The small nature of our school allows us to know all our children as individuals and to work as one big family, 'Learning in faith and growing in love.'

We welcome visitors and prospective parents to visit ourschool at any time by simply phoning the school office and making an appointment.

What the parents say...

A village school on the edge of town. A lovely peaceful setting, with lovely features. Fantastic school dinners home made on site (opted out from WCC), great wrap around care and fantastic staff. A school where all the kids mix and the older years assist the youngest. A brilliant place for young minds to grow, learn and flourish. A school I choose to send my precious children to. Also a school proud to try hard and one which has held a green eco flag award for 3 years.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
