English Martyrs Primary




English Martyrs Catholic Primary School was opened in 1962 and is the parish school of English Martyrs Church. The school tries to remain faithful to Gospel values and we aim to ensure that our children not only succeed academically, but also socially and spiritually.   We endeavour to make our school a safe and happy environment where the children are keen to learn and are able to maximise their potential.

The majority of pupils go on to the local Catholic secondary school, Blessed Hugh Faringdon.
