Welcome to St John Rigby Catholic Primary School

It is a real honour and a privilege to welcome you to St John Rigby Catholic Primary School. We are a family-orientated thriving community with extremely talented and dedicated members of staff, supportive parents and carers, and inspirational children who strive to live out our Gospel Values of Faith, Love, Hope, Trust and Forgiveness in every aspect of their school life.​


As a Catholic community, we share a desire to see each individual, precious child, grow and develop in a loving, safe and inspiring environment. All of the 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.

St John Rigby Catholic Primary School is situated in the Diocese of Northampton,and is part of the Our Lady Immaculate Catholic Academies Trust. It is located in the Putnoe area of Bedford and is situated in beautiful, spacious grounds which provide the children with excellent open air facilities for exercise as well as a natural resource for the environmental work in the school.

The school primarily serves the parishes of Holy Cross and SS Philip and James, St Frances Cabrini and other parishes in the Bedford Deanery.

If you would like to know more, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to arrange for you to come along and visit our school.
