St Pius X Catholic Preparatory School
From the Headmaster
It is with great pleasure I welcome you to our website.
As one of the country’s leading Catholic day schools, we embrace families of all beliefs and cultures – joining together to uphold real Gospel values as the people of God.
St Pius isn’t simply just another independent primary, but genuinely preparatory in nature – empowering the discovery of individual strengths and passions by means of delivering true breadth of possibility. Our dedicated staff ensure your child has the opportunities to grow into a resilient and successful life-long learner – and someone understandably proud of academic, sporting and artistic achievements.
In partnership with you their parents, we celebrate your son and daughter for who they are. Nobody gets lost in lists or a sea of faces – everyone belongs. This is why our children are not only recognised for high standards of scholarly attainment – but also as loving and accomplished young people, well-equipped for everything the future may bring.
I see us able to maintain cherished traditions whilst developing and evolving too. As a person of faith and deep-seated aspiration, St Pius himself provides us with a firm spiritual anchor when meeting the challenges and needs of an ever-changing educational landscape.
Choosing the best school is such a significant aspect of parenting, and I know this website merely gives a flavour of what we offer. On your actual visit you’ll experience first-hand the positive impact we can have on the heart, mind and soul of your child – and then agree that the children here really do become the greatest ambassadors of the St Pius family. I will be delighted to share this with you.
