St Charles RC Primary School

Our Parish

"Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger."

(James 1:19)


We are part of St Ambrose Barlow Parish.  We continue to maintain the Catholic ethos of the school and have very good links, working in partnership with the churches in our new parish.


The school supports the Parish through various fund raising events throughout the year.
