"They have fun during break-times and during lessons. They are constantly learning and developing rapidly..." OFSTED 2017


"In this school, pupils’ very strong personal development is at the core of learning. From the moment they start in this school, adults very carefully nurture pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Pupils are curious and enthusiastic about learning..." OFSTED 2017


"The curriculum is broad and taught in a very engaging way. Excellent teaching ensures that pupils make rapid progress. Teachers plan lessons and activities that make pupils think deeply, work quickly and build learning systematically..." OFSTED 2017

Wigan LA will only offer ONE school place to each child, please ensure you select Our Lady's as your first choice in order to secure the best chance of being offered a place at our school. Last year a pupil who was ranked 64th out of 64 was offered a place at our school because they placed Our Lady's as their first choice. If you would like to discuss your application please do not hesitate to contact us on 01942 832299.


For each new September intake there are 30 places at school for Reception Year children, if 30 children or less apply for a place ALL children who apply will be offered a place, however if more than 30 children apply, places will be allocated with reference to the school's Admissions policy.

If you are unable to join us at our Open Day for parents and children wishing to apply for a place in our school starting in September 2021, please contact the school to arrange a personal tour of the school.

Please see our promotional video above for a brief overview of the school. This was kindly produced by Matthew & Ben of Parallax Media who were students at Runshaw College.

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

Newsletter Issue 3 - 2019/20

Preparation for Reconciliation and First Holy communion 2020-21

It is something of an understatement that this coming year’s Sacramental Programme presents some new challenges. At this stage we do not know when parish meetings will be able to take place. Nor do we know when Father Kevin will be able to welcome larger congregations at Our Lady’s. Neither of the two, however, seem imminent. However, please rest assured that we are in constant dialogue with the parish and diocese and will let you know the way forward as soon we can.


A polite reminder that parents should not park on the zig zags or any yellow lines outside school when dropping off or picking up. The safeguarding of our children is vital and can’t be stressed enough. Wigan LA are conducting spot checks and tickets will be given out.

Big Clean up

Last week and this week, our children are taking part in a range of Eco initiatives to support our environment.
The children are doing a great job and having fun at the same time!

Lego Award

Last Friday, our Y6 children were involved in a Lego project to develop leadership and encourage young people in our area to become active citizens. During the workshop, the children took part in a fun, fast paced LEGO based simulation to explore what improvements could be made to their local environment. The children had a fantastic time and learned a great deal!

Welcome Back

Hello to all of our family and friends of Our Lady’s R.C Primary School. I would like to thank each of you for the exceptional way you and your child/ren have managed in the face of adversity throughout the pandemic and I hope that you have been able to have a restful summer holiday. We were delighted that the level of COVID-19 circulating in the wider population had decreased sufficiently to enable us to welcome all pupils back to school last week. Throughout the summer period, our premises, health and safety and leadership team have continued to monitor the government and local authority guidance closely so that we were appropriately prepared to welcome back your child/ren. I know that everyone’s story throughout the pandemic has been different and some people have fought very hard battles with bereavement, health worries, financial worries, mental health and anxiety challenges on top of the isolation and juggling home learning. Whatever your circumstances, we want this year to be a time of renewing learning, creating new relationships and building safe routines.

Welcome Service

On Friday 11th September, the opening of the school year will be marked by the celebration of a Mass by Bishop John from Salford Cathedral at 10.00 am. This is a streamed Mass online to all schools in the diocese of Salford; I do hope that you are able to either join the live-stream, perhaps with a group of young people, or watch a recorded version sometime afterwards.
