On behalf of the whole community of Our Lady’s, may I welcome you to our school website.

We hope that you will find all of the information you are looking for and that the website will give you an insight into the life at our wonderful school.

Being the Headteacher of Our Lady’s gives me great pleasure. Having been the Deputy Headteacher here for four years, I am fully committed to the community of Our Lady’s and strive to ensure that the school serves our local children and their families well.

I believe our school is very special. Our Lady’s enjoys a reputation as a happy and caring Catholic primary school. We are proud of our academic achievements, our friendly purposeful atmosphere and the extra curricular provision made available to our pupils.


We expect the highest standards from our pupils in all aspects of school life, in their attitudes to learning and in their behaviour. Our Lady’s staff are committed, talented and professional, providing a caring, safe and supportive learning environment for our pupils.


We try to encourage at all times an active partnership with parents, pupils, governors and parish to help ensure the best possible education for each one of our pupils.


We hope you like our website; however, if there is anything else you would find useful please let us know through the ‘Contact Us’ page. You are very welcome to visit and experience our outstanding school for yourself – learning and loving together; we grow with Jesus.


As headteacher, I am always able to make time to talk to parents, so please do not hesitate to ask.


I look forward to meeting you and your child.


Mr Chris Horridge

What a fantastic Christmas performance from all the YR and KS1 children last week. I hope all the audiences enjoyed it as much as the children clearly did.

It is always a great part of our Advent journey and thank you to the staff for all their hard work.

Thank you to all families and parishioners who were able to attend the Christmas Mass in school last Friday. Well done for taking part with the actions to ‘It was on a Starry Night’!

Caritas Team at Carrington Court
Last week, our Caritas Team and some choir members visited Carrington Court Nursing Home. The children sang songs, chatted with the residents and gave them some hampers of socks and biscuits that they had made. The children were a credit to Our Lady’s!

Many thanks to Year 4 for leading our Advent Mass this Thursday with Fr Kevin. Year 4 did a fantastic job of reminding eve-rybody that this is a time of preparation in celebration of the birth of Jesus.
All parents, families and friends are welcome to join us for our Christmas Mass. The Mass is on Friday 13th December at the usual time of 11:00am.

Year 6 Q & A with Fr Kevin
Yesterday morning, our Y6 children were visited by Fr Kevin as part of a question and answer topic concerning vocation. Fr Kevin was particularly impressed with the maturity of the children and the range of questions asked. We thank Fr Kevin for giving up his valuable time to support the children with their learning.
