Hello! I am very happy to welcome you to our website!

I cannot put into words how proud I am to be joining the school family of St Malachy's as Headteacher from January 2023 to lead such a fantastic team of staff and children!

At St Malachy's we continually strive to provide a safe, secure, stimulating and healthy environment, in which every child feels loved and valued and has the opportunity to realise their full potential. We have high expectations and want to equip our children with the knowledge and skills they need to be independent, respectful, confident and well-rounded citizens of the future. We believe each child is unique and has the capability to succeed. We encourage them to be the very best version of themselves that can be each day!

We want to work closely with our Parents and Carers, our partners on this journey, through their child’s primary phase and work hard to keep them updated and well informed about their child and school life. 

We hope our website gives you a 'taste' of what our school is like, but I know it is not the same as having a look round! I would welcome the opportunity to show you round our school so you can see for yourself why St Malachy’s is such a special place to be.

If you have any queries or would like to arrange a tour, please do not hesitate to contact us on:

With many kind regards,

Mrs Hodges
