Hello, thank you for visiting our website.

I have the privilege and joy to be Headteacher of Holy Spirit Catholic and Church of England Primary School. Our school offers a faith education based upon the Christian values of both Catholic and Anglican churches. We are very proud of our inclusive nature at Holy Spirit; our aim is to provide a happy school where children, families and colleagues feel welcome and valued.

We work closely with the Catholic Parish of Our Lady of Lourdes and the Anglican Parish of St.Chad’s. We are well supported by Father John Feeney and Reverend Graham Cousins - they are active members of our community and regular visitors to our school.

We place a strong emphasis on making learning fun, and our children enjoy coming to school; all are loved and respected. We encourage children to take an active role in their development and provide a creative curriculum which delivers learning through topics and themes that motivate our children. We strive to raise aspirations, create successful learners and have high expectations of our everyone in our school.

We know our children and families well and work in partnership to help improve outcomes for our children. There are many opportunities throughout the year for families to become involved in school life and find out what their children are doing!

If you are interested in finding out more about Holy Spirit please come and visit us to experience what we have to offer you and your child - I am sure you won’t be disappointed!

Looking forward to meeting you soon,


Mrs Joanne Cartmell
