Why Choose Us


It is a real honour and a privilege to welcome you to St John Rigby Catholic Primary School.

As a Catholic community, we share a desire to see each individual child, grow and develop in a loving, safe and inspiring environment. All children are encouraged to grow in the love of God and one another, to develop their unique and God-given talents, to form lasting friendships and to strive for excellence in everything they do. 

As a community of learners, we strive for excellence in teaching and an enjoyment of learning; in a setting underpinned by Gospel values and practices. Our mission statement is  at the heart of all we do at St John Rigby

"God's will be done through work and play, as we follow Jesus day be day"

Our vision is that every child will leave our school with the knowledge and understanding of how to make a positive contribution; to follow God’s call in their lives and discover their unique vocation in which to flourish and find fulfilment, and to love and serve each other, and God, through our work and our play.

We look forward to welcoming you to our St John Rigby Primary community.

Mrs M McGettigan
