"Everyone at St Bernadette's is dedicated to providing the best possible education and care to every single young person we serve. We aim to give all our children an exciting and challenging faithbased curriculum so that they discover and develop their God given abilities and skills during their time at St Bernadette's.

"We are looking for an exceptional, resilient and inspiring leader to be the principal of St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School who is able to build on our existing successes and offer quality educational provision to mixed aged classes."
