St. Philip’s RC Primary School is situated on the Salford / Bury border and serves a large Catholic parish. The school is larger than average and has approximately 390 pupils on roll, including 30 full time nursery children. St. Philip’s RC is led by our Headteacher, Mr Barrett.
The school building itself is not purpose-built, but is an old house which is full of character. Having joined the LEA in the 1950s, after starting out as a private school, several extensions and modifications have been made to the building, which itself is full of character and provides pupils with a unique learning environment.
At the heart of St. Philip’s ethos is the desire to unlock the creative potential of its pupils, and academic results are exceptional and above both the national and local authority averages. Pupils’ personal and social development are also graded by Ofsted as being outstanding.
Teachers and parents’ high expectations are fundamental in the school’s success and support a busy curriculum alongside a remarkable amount of out-of-school opportunities.
St. Philip’s is a Roman Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary School for children who have been baptised Catholic. All admissions are decided by the Board of Governors.
