Welcome to St. Oswald’s
As headteacher it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website.
We pride ourselves on our excellent relationships with children, staff, parents, carers and governors. St Oswald’s is a thriving Catholic community, where everyone is valued and is given the best opportunity to achieve fully. Whilst academic achievement is very important, it must be balanced with the children’s social, moral and spiritual formation.
It is important to me that you, as parents and carers, have a voice and feel that school is approachable and welcoming and that any concerns you may have can be shared, so please never hesitate to get in touch.
Please take some time to peruse our fantastic website which is bursting with information and news.
If you are a prospective new parent, then please feel free to contact us to arrange an appointment to visit.
Mrs T Musgrove
