"Pupils positively flourish in this nurturing and caring environment. They enjoy a vast array of exciting and stimulating activities in the school. Children in the early years blossom. They quickly become confident and resilient learners. " OFSTED 2023


" Pupils are passionate about learning and relish every opportunity that staff provide. Their conduct and attitudes embody the school’s mission statement: ‘Learning and loving together, we grow with Jesus.’" OFSTED 2023


"Parents and carers who shared their views could not praise the school highly enough. One parent summed up the views of many, ‘All the staff go above and beyond to provide an outstanding education for our children’s futures.’" OFSTED 2023

In-Year Admissions

There are a number of reasons why pupils move school mid year, and as such places can become available throughout the year.

If for example, you are moving into the area and wish to make an in-year admission to Our Lady's, please contact the school office as soon as possible, to see if space is available in your child's year group.

Late applications/Preference changes

If you have not yet applied for a primary school place, or you wish to change your mind about the preferences or the order of preferences after the closing date, you must complete a late application form.

Welcome to our school website. 

We hope you find all the information you are looking for and it gives you a flavour of our amazing school.


I am honoured to be the Headteacher at Our Lady’s R.C. Primary School. We are a very unique and distinct school who enjoy excellent academic achievements as well as developing each child into life-long learners, ready to make a difference in the wider community.


We expect the highest standards from our pupils in all aspects of school life, including their attitudes to learning and their behaviour. I work alongside a fantastic and committed staff team who are passionate, talented and strive to go above and beyond for our pupils.


At Our Lady’s, we strongly encourage a positive and active relationship with our parents, pupils, governors and the parish to ensure our children receive the best education.


As Headteacher, I am always available to make time to talk to parents, so please do not hesitate to ask or to make an appointment. I look forward to meeting you in the near future.

Mr A. Cregan
