We are delighted that you are interested in St Bernard’s RC Primary School. We are very proud of our school, with parents, children, governors, staff, and St Bernard’s RC Church working together in a strong community. We warmly invite prospective parents to visit our school and meet our wonderful staff and children.
St Bernard’s RC Primary is a Catholic school in the trusteeship of the Diocese of Salford, maintained by the Manchester Local Authority. As a voluntary-aided school, all admissions are decided by the Governing Body.
As a Catholic school, our curriculum includes Catholic religious education and worship, which helps children grow in their understanding of the Good News and in the practice of their faith. We welcome families of all faiths to apply for a place at our school, asking that parents applying to St Bernard’s respect our central ethos and its importance to the school community.
Parents must complete a Local Authority Preference Form or apply online via the Manchester City Council website. If you wish to have your application considered against that school's religious criteria then you must also complete the Supplementary Form which is available from the school.
Please read our Admissions Policies to find out more about the application process. If you have any questions, or would like to arrange a visit, please get in touch with the school office.
