Since its foundation in 1963, Saint Augustine’s reputation has gone from strength to strength as a caring and forward-looking Catholic school, proud of its outstanding record of academic excellence, pastoral care and rich extra-curricular opportunities available to all its students.

Set in beautiful rural surroundings, our school is a place where children can study, play and develop in safety. Our recent Ofsted inspection report judged the school to be outstanding in all aspects of its work, commenting that “students achieve outstandingly well from their starting points” in “a very caring and highly cohesive place of learning and development”. (Ofsted 2013).

Our Section 48 inspection undertaken by Salford Diocese also judged the school to be outstanding in all areas
commenting that “St Augustine’s is a learning community which provides a living testimony to the vision and strength of the cohesive leadership which is successfully delivering the mission of the Church in education.”

We measure our success by the happy, considerate and motivated young people we send out after five years in our care. We hope this prospectus will give you a flavour of what our school has to offer.
