I am very proud to be the new Headteacher of Kirkham St Michael’s which has a long tradition of being a popular and successful school.

Kirkham St Michael’s Church of England Primary School is a ‘Good’ School as recognised by Ofsted in March 2014 and judged an ‘Outstanding’ church school following the National Society inspection in July 2016.

We aim for the children to ‘be the best that they can be’, this applies to their development educationally as well as socially and emotionally.

  • We provide an active involvement in learning for every child.
  • We provide care, challenge and opportunity for all groups.
  • Our team of dedicated professionals nurture the needs of every child in our school.

We aspire to excel in all areas of school life, challenging every child to go beyond their best, just as we would expect from following the values and teachings of the Christian faith. This key mindset runs through the whole of our curriculum with the aim of producing polite, well rounded and confident children.

We recognise that all children are unique and possess many skills, abilities, gifts and talents. Our dedicated team believe that we are providing foundations for the future so that your child can develop into the person that they wish to be.

Prospective parents and families moving into the area may enjoy seeing what makes our school such a happy and exciting place to learn. It is only possible to get a clear and complete picture of our school, its ethos, learning environment, activities and learning by coming to see for yourself. If you would like to visit our school, phone us to make an appointment and I will be proud to give you a tour.
