St Pius X Catholic Preparatory School
A word of welcome……
I would like to extend a very warm welcome to St Pius X Catholic Preparatory School & Oak House Nursery website. We are a school with a very special atmosphere and a sense of family which is shaped by our Catholic faith and values.
Our school nurtures each child’s unique gifts and talents, and promotes in them a desire to be the very best that they can be in all aspects of their school life. We have no doubt that a happy, confident and well prepared child is a successful learner.
We believe passionately in qualities to promote a sense of belonging to our school and the wider community; such as kindness, generosity, responsibility and love. All our staff ensure that everything they do is focused on creating an environment that develops your child’s confidence, knowledge and skills for life. We know that your child’s happiness and wellbeing is the cornerstone of academic successes and children at St Pius X Catholic Preparatory School & Oak House Nursery are given the confidence to believe in themselves and follow their dreams.
Our most recent ISI report in 2016 stated that, “ St Pius X is a successful school which meets its principal aims. Children in the EYFS achieve extremely well. …. In the main school pupils achieve high standards in numeracy and literacy and can use skills to access the rest of the curriculum.” When they leave us to move onto the senior school of their choice, all children are confident individuals whose future is based on the firm foundations that we have laid.
We pride ourselves on the excellent pastoral care at St Pius X Catholic Preparatory School & Oak House Nursery, everyone is committed to providing an extremely happy, caring and purposeful environment built on mutual trust and respect. At the heart of this remains our Catholic values and ethos which encourages children of all faiths to flourish.
Our staff never underestimate the commitment that you as parents make when you send your child to an independent school. We recognise that one of the most valuable gifts parents can give their child is an excellent start in life. We know that St Pius X Catholic Preparatory School & Oak House Nursery is a wonderful place for your child to spend their childhood.
