St Malachy's Catholic Primary School, A Voluntary Academy

Our mission at St Malachy's 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.


At St Malachy's, we deliver our RE lessons with the support of the Diocesan recommended scheme, The Way, The Truth and The Life. This scheme teaches and supports the children with the principles of the Catholic faith. The scheme now offers some interactive activities for you to access with your child at home.
