OUR SCHOOL

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is our school.

May all who come here be inspired with a love of life and learning in order to fulfil their aspirations.

“I can do all things in Him who strengthens me”

(Philippians 4:13)

We are proud to provide education for children from four to eleven years old in our unique Christian setting.

Brereton Primary School has seven single age classes from Reception through to Year 6. Our smallest class currently has nineteen pupils and our largest has thirty.

As a church school, we hold Christian values at the very heart of our school ethos. Our aim is that every child who passes through our doors will be inspired with a love of life and learning in order to reach their full potential.

If you choose to lead our school you will be joining a new family; the Brereton family. Our older pupils care about our younger pupils. Our School Council encourages us to support charities. Our PTA are fabulous for fundraising and enhancing the facilities that we are able to offer. St Oswald’s Church is our church; our children lead services here regularly.

We are especially proud of our link school in Kenya, St Lwanga; a Catholic Primary School in the Rift Valley. Having this partnership helps us to understand the wider world.
