St Philip's Catholic Primary and Nursery School is a one form entry school for children aged 3 to 11 from Nursery to Year 6 with 30 being the planned admission number for all years. Nursery admits 30 children and is open mornings only offering 15 hours of education to each child.
This year and next however we have agreed to admit 45 children to Reception to assist the Local Authority with growing numbers and to offer more places to Catholic families who otherwise may not be offered a Catholic education.
Please see DfE Compare Schools site for information.
The school comprises two separate buildings, the main school building opened in 1941 and has been substantially updated since, and there's the Nursery which was built in 1993. The school is surrounded by grassed areas at the side and rear and is situated next to the Parish Church which opened in 1996.
Over the last few years the main school building has been extensively improved and some refurbishment internally has produced an attractive working environment for adults and children. The school has wheelchair access and toilet facilities for those with mobility needs.
St Philip's is a partner in the Catholic Compass group of schools which comprises of 10 primary schools, St Mary's - Rothwell, St Anthony's - Beeston, Christ the King, Holy Family - New Wortley, St Francis of Assisi - Beeston, St Francis's - Morley, St Joseph's - Wetherby, St Joseph's - Hunslet, St Patrick's - Burmantofts and one high school, Mount St Mary's - Richmond Hill. The aim of the partnership is to extend and develop the Catholic Life of the schools and to share knowledge and expertise in teaching and learning. Joint learning experiences bring our children together giving them the opportunity to meet, grow and learn with young people they could well join at high school.
