to St Patrick's Catholic Primary School

Welcome to St Patrick's Catholic Primary School


The school is a Christian community where we try to live out the word of Christ by serving your children.

We believe that every child is made in the image and likeness of God – especially valued from every race, gender, social background, physical or intellectual achievement.

We are passionate about educating the whole child, and ensure that all our children have access to more than the basic academic subjects.

Do come and see this in action!


When you visit our school you will find a well maintained, airy building which was extended in 2001 and provides an excellent learning environment. We have a dedicated computer suite, school library and interactive whiteboards in every class.

Don’t miss our adventure trail. There are brightly coloured shelters for sun and rain! Our Peace Garden is a small haven of green and quiet which, along with our Gate Garden, was created by our whole community of pupil, parents, staff and governors. We also have a special Nursery Playground for our youngest children.

Our very active FOSPA – Friends of Saint Patrick’s Association – continue to support the school in developing the environment and providing additional school resources. They are major contributors and organisers of our many celebrations!

The staff, governors, children and parents work hard to achieve the success we enjoy, as our 2007 Ofsted inspection confirmed. We are all very proud of our school.

We hope this website gives you an insight of what our school is like.

"For more than a year, I have had the privilege of leading the Rocksteady bands at St Patrick's Catholic Primary School in Walthamstow. Witnessing the remarkable growth in the children's confidence and musical abilities has been an immensely rewarding experience. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be a part of a school that embraces such a positive approach to music education. At St Patrick's, the collective effort to foster a welcoming and supportive environment is evident, and I find great joy in being a member of this nurturing community."

 Ivano - Rocksteady Music Band Leader


"We have been running drama classes at St Patrick's Primary School since 2015 and aim to provide a fun environment for children to express their creativity whilst improving their confidence, teamwork and communication skills. Everyone at the school has always been extremely welcoming and supportive and we are very proud to be a part of the many enrichment activities St Patrick’s has to offer. We look forward to continuing our work with St Patrick's and their students"
