Admissions - Parent Information for Prospective students September 2021

Welcome!

Thank you for showing an interest in joining our school!
 

Our school has a unique and special ‘family feel’ which enables children to settle in well when they start at St. Pius X School. Children become accustomed to working hard and achieving high standards whilst enjoying new and ever exciting experiences in their learning. We promote the Gospel values of our Christian faith throughout our daily life and aim to create a positive and caring environment for everyone.
 

St Pius X is a happy and successful school with dedicated staff, supportive parents and Governing Body. We seek to inspire, challenge and motivate all of our children encouraging them to become responsible and caring citizens of the future. We aim to nurture each child’s natural gifts and talents whilst providing a broad and well-balanced education in a safe and happy environment.
 

We view the education of all children as a joint venture involving: children, parents, staff, governors and the wider community to which we all belong. We encourage all members of our school family to participate in every aspect of school life, as we strongly believe that working together, we can provide the very best for every child. Through this joint partnership and commitment, we welcome new members to our school to work and grow in the love of Christ.
