About St Augustine's Roman Catholic High School, Billington

Saint Augustine’s is an oversubscribed mixed 11-16 Roman Catholic High School with 1,080 pupils on roll. From our original intake of 450 pupils in 1963 we have grown steadily in popularity and are now one of the largest Catholic high schools in Lancashire.

Our location is enviable. Surrounded by fields, with Pendle Hill as a backdrop, we enjoy a beautiful rural setting. Billington is a short walk from the ruined twelfth century Cistercian abbey of Whalley, one of the most attractive villages in the Ribble Valley. The school is also a short drive away from the market town of Clitheroe, dominated by its little castle, and the Pendle villages associated with the seventeenth century witchcraft trials.

The Ribble Valley is a lovely part of the world, often listed in the “Best Place to Live in the UK” surveys, and despite being largely rural, its population is rising.
