Together we Achieve, Believe & Care


Welcome to St Modwen's Catholic Primary School.  At St Modwen's we offer a warm welcome into our beautiful school environment, where the Gospel values of love, peace and justice are reflected in all that we do as a community of faith.  We are an inclusive school, valuing the education of all our children, so that each child fulfils their God-given potential.  We achieve this in a setting underpinned by Gospel values and practices.

Our Catholic life permeates all aspects of school life; this was validated in our RE Section 48 Inspection in February 2018, which judged us to be an outstanding Catholic school.  As a committed team of staff, we strive to continually review and improve our journey towards excellence for the children and community of St Modwen's.  As parents, you are the first educators of your child; with that in mind, we actively seek and value your contributions so that we can enjoy an effective partnership in supporting your child’s progress as a member of God’s family.

Our latest Ofsted judgement in February 2019 agreed that we continue to be a good school, commenting on the good quality of education, vibrant curriculum and our bright and engaging learning environment.

We would welcome the opportunity to show you around our fantastic school and meet our confident, enthusiastic children.  We hope you will enjoy our website and do open an invitation for you to visit our school and see St Modwen's in action!
