St. Anthony's Catholic Primary School

At St. Anthony’s we bring faith, fun, learning and culture together, relating Christ’s message of love, mercy and kindness to modern life. Our Catholic identity is not exclusive to RE lessons and worship but shines throughout every aspect of school and every adult in school, helping the children in their lifelong journey with God as part of our community of faith as we ourselves journey towards our 'Outstanding 2020 Vision'. Our wonderful children are bright eyed and enthusiastic: they want to achieve in all areas of the curriculum - thanks to the work of our staff and governors and the steadfast support of our parents. We hope you enjoy browsing our website and even following us on Twitter. We can only show you a fraction of the vibrant work that happens here each day and offer you a glimpse of our exciting developments. I would love you to accept an invite to come and visit us in person where you can see every child, every chance, every day in action together with Christ. We look forward to welcoming you, your children and your family to the family of St. Anthony's Catholic Primary School as we stay focused on our 'Outstanding 2020 Vision'

Every Child   Every Chance   Every Day   Together with Christ

St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross - Our Parish

St. Anthony's Catholic Primary School belongs to a new parish, formed in 2009 following the merger of the parishes of St Mary and St Walburga in Shipley and St Aidan’s in Baildon. Our Parish Priest is Fr. Keiron Walker.

Previously there were two churches in our own smaller parish, St Anthony of Padua, Windhill and Our Lady and St Anthony at Wrose. In 1997 the latter church was closed and, after a life of almost 50 years, the parish was finally disestablished.

St Anthony’s and the Windhill community then transferred to St Walburga’s parish and the remainder to St Francis of Assisi, Eccleshill.  

St Anthony’s Church, Windhill, continued to function as a chapel-of-ease in the parish of St Walburga until 2009 when, following the major reorganisation of parishes within the Bradford area, the church was finally closed.

We join together with our local Catholic school, St. Walburga's, for joint masses every term at either of our churches. Fr. Keiron comes in every week to say mass, lead services and talk the children and staff.
