About St Chad's Catholic Primary School

St. Chad’s is a mixed Catholic Primary School in Newtown in the parish of St Chad’s Cathedral. We cater for a diverse and international community of up to 210 children aged from 4 to 11 years, with over 20 languages spoken between staff and students. The children at St Chad’s are at the heart of every decision, and we have high aspirations for each of them. Behaviour is excellent. Our last OFSTED showed the school to be ‘Good and improving’, a result of the hard work, care and determination of a wonderful teaching staff and the partnership between our parents and the school.

As a Catholic School, Christ is at the centre of all we do. It is expected that all children, parents and staff will be fully involved in this fundamental aspect of school life. Our Catholic ethos is embedded across all teaching and learning and enrichment opportunities, and we strive to ensure that our pupils’ experience of Catholic Life is rich and meaningful. We are proud to share a unique relationship with St. Chad’s Cathedral as well as the wider local community. We are also growing our partnerships and have plans to join the St Teresa of Calcutta Multi Academy Company within the coming year.
