Virtual Open Day 2020

Primary Department

St Brigid's would like to offer you a virtual tour of our school. While the current conditions make it difficult for visitors to attend our usual annual open day. We hope that this online page can give you a glimpse of what our wonderful school can offer your child.

St Brigid's School Primary Department offer excellence in education for pupils for 3- 11. They then have the rare opportunity to move up through the school into the Secondary School, remaining on the same site. The pupils enjoy the consistency this brings in their transition to secondary education.

The Catholic and family ethos of the school begins the moment the children enter. We are fortunate to have access to fabulous grounds and stunning views.
