Meet the Team

Teaching Staff

Mrs M Anderton 

Mrs Anderton has over 20 years of experience working in local Catholic schools and is committed to developing and supporting the faith of our children. She believes that everyone is unique and made in the image of God and that all children should celebrate and understand their differences. Mrs Anderton considers communication as the key to maintain a thriving community and has an open door policy. A positive early education can open many doors for pupils who may grow up to take on jobs that do not yet exist. Mrs Anderton believes that every child should be taught to be life-long learners as well as kind and caring members of the community.

Assistant Headteacher

Mrs S Gavin
Mrs Gavin is passionate about Catholic education and encourages the importance of every child's holistic development. She believes that all children are entitled to the very best education as they only get one chance. She has an open door policy and is rooted in the ethos that communication is the key to the running of an excellent school where a problem shared is a problem halved.  Mrs Gavin has over 15 years of experience teaching and believes it is a privilege to tutor young minds both academically and holistically.
