About us

Bolton St Catherine's Academy is a caring school community that offers a rich and varied curriculum for children in Nursery to Year 6, where we strive to develop a life of learning and the entry point to a lifetime of achievement. It is hoped that children will be 'hungry for learning' and leave the primary phase of the Academy wanting more!

All Bolton St Catherine's staff, teaching and non-teaching, are dedicated to assist in your children's development to the best of their ability. We are also committed to working alongside parents to ensure that every child gets the best possible start to their education. Our doors are always open to you and your family so that we can more easily and efficiently work together for the benefit of your child and all those in our school.

While we celebrate all our children's gifts and talents and recognise the growth they make as an individual the school is proud that our SATs results have also consistently been above the national average.

As a Church of England Sponsored Academy, we enjoy close links with Christ's Church, Harwood and the local community. We are delighted to work and learn alongside Canon Wendy Oliver who leads worship in school through the year, and we regularly hold services in Church to which you are always welcome to attend.

I hope you will find our web site useful as a source of information for our welcoming school, where your child's stay will be happy. If you can't find what you need, do not hesitate to be in touch.
