Welcome to St Malachy's Catholic Primary School

Dear Parent/Carers

Our mission is to provide an enriching, high quality education, where we learn, love and grow with Christ at the centre, so that each individual feels nurtured and can achieve their full potential. We strive to be an oasis of educational excellence where our children feel well-supported, happy and safe, therefore enjoying school. They benefit greatly from the creative, skills-based curriculum they receive, and love the exciting school trips and interesting visitors who enhance their learning.

If you would like your child to start in Nursery or Reception (2021/22), we would be delighted to show you around our warm, friendly school.
