I am delighted to welcome you to Our Lady and St. Thomas RC Primary through this website, and hope that it will give you a gateway and insight into the life of our community and the learning ethos of our school.

We are very proud of our highly successful school, our pupils and their achievements. We believe that Our Lady and St. Thomas RC Primary is a very special place and the relationship we develop with our children and their families enables us to create our distinctive ethos.

At Our Lady and St. Thomas, we are blessed with a team of staff who are extremely hard working and dedicated to helping every pupil in our school to achieve to the best of their ability.

We aim to develop the whole child and prepare children for their future by achieving a high level of academic success underpinned by Gospel values of love, tolerance and forgiveness.

We know that your child will be happy at our school, and we hope that you as parents and carers will become fully involved in your child’s education and the life of the school in general.

The partnership between home, school and church is a vital one, and mutual support is imperative. At Our Lady and St. Thomas, we value and encourage your participation and support.

I hope you will find this website helpful in giving you an overview of our school, as well as providing you with practical information which you may find useful.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school should you require any further information or if you would like a paper copy of any of the information included on our website.
