Headteacher's Welcome

A big warm welcome to the community that is St James’ Catholic Primary School, Hattersley. Thank you for your interest in our school and we are glad that you have found our school website. We have recently made some big changes to our site and School sign hope that you find it interesting and informative and have as much fun reading it as we have had making it!

Our school is a voluntary aided school and belongs to the parish of St James, the Great, in Hattersley which is part of the  Diocese of Shrewsbury. Our Local Authority is Tameside MBC and we work closely with both the diocese and the local authority.

All children are welcome at our school. Most parents choose us because we are a small, friendly school with a strong Christian ethos and a family atmosphere. We have a good reputation in the local area for having well behaved and hardworking children who are particularly good at music and sport.

Why don’t you give us a ring or come and have a look round? You would be made very welcome!

Mrs J.A.Walker (Headteacher)
