Welcome to the new website for St Modwen's Catholic Primary School.

We are one of two Catholic primary schools serving the Burton on Trent area.  We currently have almost 300 children on roll in our brand new school site on Tutbury Rd in Burton. 

On 10th September our school was blessed by the Archbishop of Birmingham, Bernard Longley.


We hope that you will find all the information that you need about our school on this site.

If you have any questions or wish to make a visit to school in relation to an admissions application, please contact the school office                       office@st-modwens.staffs.sch.uk and we will be happy to welcome you.

St George's Park Visit

In November, 32 children went to St George's Park to receive coaching during the important visit of UEFA President, Michel Platini. He was joined by Greg Dyke (FA Chairman) and David Gill (Ex-Man Utd Chief Executive). The children were delighted to meet them. The children were selected due to their 'excellent attitudes' in coaching sessions at St Modwen's. We were the only school there.

See the following link, our children feature in the video of Platini (1 minute into the video). The video also appeared on Sky Sports News.


Please visit our sport page for more information on the trip.

For many of the children, it was their first time visiting St George's Park.

Michel Platini (UEFA President and former French international superstar) meets the children.

School Games Gold Award

St Modwen's have been awarded the highest level Sainsbury's School Games Mark - the Gold award! It reflects the outstanding participation in School Games events. The children have once again done the school proud competing in a multitude of sporting events.
