St. Paul’s Catholic Primary School  

St. Paul’s Catholic Primary School is the primary School for the Holy Family Parish, and literally hundreds of our Parish children have attended it over the years!

St. Paul’s is a thriving, caring community of around 350 pupils, where the focus is on helping every child to flourish.

The School’s vision is ‘To inspire, nurture and prepare students for the future, through exemplary teaching and a thriving School community, underpinned by Catholic values and a commitment to developing the whole child and their unique gifts’.   And the School’s mission is to ‘Journey together, loving learning, daring to discover, caring for all, and with Jesus as the guide’.

As it says on the School’s website (, St. Paul’s is a family, where the children are the priority and purpose, and where Gospel values and Catholic virtues are embraced.

The School very much welcomes the direct and active involvement and support of Parishioners, and you are encouraged to get in touch with Hayley Townsend, the School Head, to discuss the various ways in which you could provide that support.   Hayley can be reached at 020-8398-6791 or via

The School’s Governors, who include many of our Parishioners, are committed to supporting the best possible learning environment for pupils, including using the funds available to the School to invest in its buildings and equipment.   And that’s where the Governors’ Fund comes in and why each year Holy Family Parishioners are invited to make voluntary contributions to it.

Without doubt, the high standard of facilities the School enjoys today is as a direct result of the donations received in to the Fund each year, and those donations have provided for a new roof, new toilets, new fire doors, replacement windows, new classroom blinds, LED lighting, new security gates, an improved IT server and a new speaker system.

Given the strong links between the Parish and the School, and the goal of having a thriving Catholic primary school continue to be linked to our Parish, we would be very grateful to receive a one-off, or monthly standing order, contribution to the Governors’ Fund, the account details for which are:
