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

British Values throughout the year

Rev Jeyapaul and his son Charles come from Tamil Nadu in South India. He grew up in one of the lowest of the Indian caste groups, known as the Dalits or Untouchables. Through the support of a missionary priest he was able to get an education and became the only person in his village to do so at the time. As an adult he became a Priest and in 1998 set up Kathryn's Mercy home to support the education of the local poor children, who otherwise would not receive further education. The home started with 15 children but now supports 204 children.  This includes board, lodging and education.  He has also set up a home from elderly women who would otherwise be homeless. 

St Anthony's started sponsoring a child four years ago, a girl called Mukila, and each year we hold a non-uniform day to raise the money to send on. We will do it on her birthday.  Here is a link to the Kathryn's Mercy site:
