About US



St Malachy's Primary is a Catholic Primary Voluntary Academy based at the centre of the community and Parish of Our Lady of Lourdes & St Malachy's.  We are part of the Blessed Peter Snow Catholic Academy Trust.

Schools within our trust are: St John Fisher's, Dewsbury and Sacred Heart, Sowerby Bridge. 

We currently have over 190 pupils on roll aged between 3 and 11 years old. 

We have an Early Years Foundation Unit (Nursery & Reception) and six other classes of key stage 1 & key stage 2 children.

Our original building dates back to 1952, however, modifications have taken place in recent years. 

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.

The school is committed to achieving high standards so that pupils can attain their full potential.  Attention will be paid to all aspects of a child’s development.

As a Catholic school we celebrate with daily acts of worship, religious assemblies and masses. 

'St' Malachy's Catholic Primary - a great place to be!'
