Headteacher's Message

St. Augustine’s is a thriving Catholic school with a reputation for the very highest standards, outstanding students, and exceptional staff.

Whether you are already a member of the St. Augustine’s family or considering joining us, we hope the website will give you an insight into our wonderful school.

Gospel values and the teachings of the Catholic Church underpin all aspects of school life and we place Christ at the centre of all that we do. St Augustine’s continues to retain the traditional values from which we have gained a strong reputation, a distinctive Catholic ethos, a broad and balanced curriculum, high expectations and outstanding pastoral care. We are aspirational for all and to strive to meet the needs of every child to ensure they fulfil their God given potential both in and outside of the classroom.

An inspection undertaken by Salford Diocese judged the school to be outstanding in all areas commenting that “the Catholic leadership and vision of the school creates a learning community that inspires all to strive for excellence. The exceptional quality of pastoral care, particularly for those in greatest need, is inspirational.” (Salford Diocese 2019).

We strive to put our mission statement into practice every day and act humbly, love tenderly and recognise God in our lives.

Our school is a place where all pupils are safe, happy, and successful. Our last Ofsted inspection judged the school to be good in all areas, commenting that “there is a strong sense of community at St Augustine’s. Pupils, including pupils with SEND, are successful in their education and are well prepared for their next steps.” (Ofsted 2023).

We have recently celebrated our diamond anniversary and, since its foundation in 1963, Saint Augustine’s continues to go from strength to strength, providing a good Catholic education for the community and parishes that we serve.

I hope the website provides you with the information you need and gives you a sense of the school that we are so proud of. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
