About Us

St Catherine's: A family united in God's love, learning in faith together for a compassionate tomorrow.


St Catherine's Catholic Primary School is an academy within Plymouth CAST multi - academy trust.


We are a welcoming learning community, who worship and celebrate God’s love for us, witnessing  this daily,  prioritizing the welfare of our children and sharing the word of God.The partnership of our parents is highly valued as we nurture and support our pupils, providing challenges which allow them to strive to reach their potential.


Our purpose built Early Years unit provides accommodation for our youngest children and includes our Kindergarten which offers pre- school education from the age of two years, nine months. The school provides full time education for children aged between four and eleven. Many of our children are Catholic though we accept children from other faith traditions. 


The majority of our children enter the school having attended the Kindergarten and transfer to St Peter's RC Comprehensive School in Bournemouth and the end of year 6, following their eleventh birthday.


Set in beautiful and extensive grounds, with large sports fields and a wooded area, St Catherine's offers a wide and stimulating curriculum with a wide range of extra- curricular activities.


Please do take time to read the Welcome booklet below to help familiarise yourself with our school.
