St. Paul’s CE Primary School is a two form entry primary school for children between the ages of 3 and 11. We are tucked away in Walkden, just near to the large Tesco and Walkden Town Centre.

Our school has three buildings situated within beautiful tree laden grounds. The most recent addition to our school is a brand new, very high tech modular building which houses our children in years 3-5. The main school building is home to our youngest pupils in nursery and reception (Early Years) along with our KS1 pupils. Y6 pupils are very grand as they have a building all to themselves within their own Y6 grounds! All our school buildings provide excellent, bright and interesting learning environments where we love to showcase the learning of our pupils. Although we have three buildings, our pupils are brought together as often as possible through assemblies, celebration events and lots of buddy work.

Here at St. Paul’s, we work very much as a team; all with the same professional dedication, child centred approach and the highest expectations in our pursuit of excellence. Our staff want only the very best for our pupils and their families and work with untiring enthusiasm to provide high quality learning experiences and environments throughout the school.
