St. Vincent's Roman Catholic Primary School
Highly popular two form entry Roman Catholic primary serving the three local Parishes. About half the pupils are from ethnic groups other than White British and a third speak English as a second language. The academic achievement of the school is very high.
The last OFSTED report rated the school as satisfactory. There have been several changes of leadership over the last few years and the current head teacher is relatively new.
