St Paul’s Catholic Schools Federation
St Paul's RCVA Primary School and St Paul’s RCVA Middle School
I am very pleased to welcome you to The Alnwick Partnership of Schools, a federation of St Paul’s RCVA Primary School and St Paul’s RCVA Middle School.
Please see link to the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle
The federation was formed in November 2010 when St. John’s RCVA Primary School and Thomas Percy RCVA Middle School were relocated to this current site. The schools were renamed St Paul’s RCVA Primary School and St Paul’s RCVA Middle School. By working in partnership, both schools enjoy the benefits of this unique arrangement within the town, which allows pupils to share this glorious site and state of the art facilities in the heart of Alnwick.
The schools are dedicated to St Paul, who gives our school a worthy example of Christian faith in action and links us firmly with the parish community of St Paul’s RC Church, Alnwick and the Mercy Associates who support us with great generosity. We are also very fortunate to have a committed, proactive team of Governors who are very interested and involved in all aspects of the school including developing strong relationships with parents.
Both Catholic schools share a caring Christian ethos where people of all faiths are welcomed, valued and affirmed. Prayer and worship are at the heart of our schools where we encourage deep respect for Gospel values in the day to day life of all those who are part of our community. As St. Paul said:
“Don’t let the world around you squeeze you into its own mould, but let God re-mould your minds from within, so that you may prove in practice that the plan of God for you is good, meets all his demands and moves towards the goal of true maturity” (Rom 12:1-2 )
The Alnwick Partnership of Schools enables our pupils to join our school community as young as 3 and remain in continuous education in a familiar setting, feeling safe and nurtured until they are confident, responsible citizens, well prepared for their move to high school education at the age of 13.
Parents benefit by knowing their child will have a seamless transfer from first to middle school with the minimum amount of upheaval during this crucial stage of their education. Our professional staff are able to know each individual pupil and by working together, in partnership with parents, we aim to deliver the best possible education for your child.
