SS Mary & Michael Catholic Primary School, Garstang
SS Mary and Michael is a Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary School and an important part of the parish community. Although there was a Catholic School in the town in the eighteenth century, the first parts of our present building were erected in 1858. The school itself, on the southern edge of the town, is by the River Wyre looking out towards Greenhalgh Castle and the Bowland Fells.
Our Philosophy of Education
In our caring environment, love of God and respect for each other is central to our philosophy. We aim to provide a stimulating and enthusiastic approach so that the children achieve their academic potential through a positive approach to learning. Our school is open to all denominations.
Our Mission Statement
We are all unique and can reach our full potential in the loving family of SS Mary & Michael Catholic Primary School. Walking with Jesus, caring for each other, we learn together in the warmth of our school home.
