A small school with a big heart

"Our Lady and St Oswald's: A small school with a big heart"


Our Lady & St Oswald’s is a warm, welcoming school where everyone is valued and our Catholic Faith is the cornerstone of our school.  We balance academic achievement with a caring and supportive environment and our children enjoy a varied and rich curriculum with lots of opportunities to access after-school clubs.

We have 140 children between the ages of 4 and 11 in school and are particularly proud of the way our children care for one another, especially through our buddy system.   

OFSTED 2017 stated that Our Lady & St Oswald's is a Good School; that "Pupils at Our Lady and St Oswald’s are happy, enthusiastic and well cared for. Pupils and parents appreciate the ‘family atmosphere’ where pupils can speak openly about their preferences or worries. Pupils settle quickly to their lessons and are keen to demonstrate their understanding, knowledge and ideas. They know the daily routines and are keen to do well. Pupils enjoy a range of after-school activities and visitors."
