New Intake September 2021 – Open Day Latest


Dear Prospective Parent / Carer,

Welcome to St Catharine’s CE Primary school website. Unfortunately, due to the latest Government guidelines, we are unable to invite you into our school to look around and meet the team. As an alternative, please can we invite you to look around our website to give you a flavour of life at the fabulous Saint Catharine’s CE Primary School.

Please click on the video below, where our head girl, head boy, deputy head boy and deputy head girl have written their own presentation of life at Saint Catharine’s. They wrote and recorded this themselves.


For more specific information about Reception life at St Catharine’s, please click on our CLASS PAGES tab at the top of the page (or in your menu) and then select RECEPTION CLASS 2021/2022 where our current Reception teacher, Miss Brown, has more information for you.

Can I also encourage you to take a look at the class pages. These are updated regularly so you can see some of our most recent work.

For a fuller flavour of our school, please also click the whole school video also located on this home page, next to the Headteacher welcome letter below. This video beautifully sums up our school!

At Saint Catharine’s LOVE, BELIEVE, ACHIEVE underpins all aspects of school life. We pride ourselves on a happy, thriving school where every child achieves.

If you wish to discuss anything further, please contact the school office either via email enquiries@admin.saintcatharines.wigan.sch.uk or via telephone 01942 733081.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Take care in these challenging times

God Bless

Headteacher’s Welcome


Welcome to St. Catharine’s CE Primary School website where you will find out all about our wonderful school.

St. Catharine’s is a one form entry school situated in Scholes close to Wigan town centre.

As a church school we celebrate our links with St. Catharine’s church and the local parish. Our children regularly attend worship in church and parents are encouraged to join us. Our Christian values are at the heart of all we do in school and our children strive to achieve these on a daily basis.

Our aim is for all children to achieve their full potential and be the best they possibly can. We have a very experienced, dedicated and caring team of governors, teachers and teaching assistants who ensure this happens every day.

Our bespoke curriculum is exciting, motivating and challenging, giving children enjoyable experiences through trips, visitors and high quality teaching and learning.

The best way to find out more about our school is to come and visit. We know you will enjoy it. We look forward to meeting you.

Thank you

Mrs Sue Pittendreigh
