Description of the school

This larger than average Catholic junior school, housed in a modernised building that is over 100 years old, is situated next to the parish church in a well established district of Liverpool. It serves a stable community with housing that consists mainly of owner-occupied or rented terraced and semi-detached property.

Almost all pupils are White British and none is learning English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is above average, as is the proportion with learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The school has the Artsmark Gold and Activemark Gold and has applied for British Council International School status.
