The Parish Schools play a pivotal role in the Catholic education of children up to the age of 11 and provide much needed support for parents wanting to educate their children in the faith. Links between the Parish and the schools are excellent with regular liturgical celebrations for the school community being held in the Church and in the Primary School.
There is good collaboration between the schools and the Parish as they seek to support the children and their families in sacramental preparation.
Our Lady of Lourdes, Catholic Primary School
The Parish has its own very good Catholic Primary School.
Approximately half of the children are Catholics and priority is given to Catholic children. Mass is celebrated regularly in school and every effort is made to imbue all activities with Christian values.

St Hugh of Lincoln Nursery School
The nursery school was set up in 1995, and is owned by the parish, in Trust to the Archdiocese. There are about 58 pupils with a considerable waiting list for places. The pupils attend varying numbers of sessions, under the guidance of well-qualified staff. The nursery school offers local Catholic parents a good pre-school education combined with a nurturing of their children’s growing Catholic faith. Children of families who are not Catholics are also welcomed.
The Early Years partnership ensures a smooth transition from the nursery school to Foundation (F1) Children from both settings spend regular time together from age 2½ to 4. For those children who have been offered a place at Our Lady of Lourdes School, 2 visits to F1 take place during their final term at St Hugh’s.
