Headteacher's Message

Welcome to our school website. Hopefully you will find all the information you need to give you a flavour of what our school is about. It’s a great school which is blessed in many ways with fabulous pupils, supportive parents, incredible staff and a real ‘family feel’.

We are very lucky to have the Church on our doorstep so that we can enjoy a close relationship with the Parish.

For a small school we achieve big things. Just a few examples: we are the maths hub for the whole of Essex, Southend and Thurrock, we lead on teacher training and we are a centre of excellence for phonics. This is all in addition to what we do best which is to provide a quality first education in a happy, supportive environment!

We are also part of a MAT with 6 other Catholic schools, working together to provide the best education possible for our pupils. This has been especially useful during the Covid-19 school closures where working together really helped.

This is an incredibly difficult time for everyone but your support for each other has been commendable and as a community we will get through this. In the meantime let’s continue to follow the rules and stay safe however challenging that may seem at times… just remember we are in this together.

If you are a prospective parent to the school we will not be doing our usual tours of the school that show how wonderful the school is, you will not get an opportunity to see the fantastic teaching in action nor will you get the chance to see the utterly amazing children we have at the school. You can take my word for it (I have been here quite a long time!) or better still try and find a current parent to ask. Either way you will not be disappointed.

 Keep praying, keep safe.
