Mater Ecclesiae Catholic Academy Trust

St. Bernard’s Catholic Primary School is one of seven Catholic schools who formed the Mater Ecclesiae Catholic Multi Academy Trust. We are still our own unique individual school - but in the next few years will be part of a larger Catholic family of schools working together. The Bishop’s vision for education is that all Catholic schools in the Lancaster Diocese will be part of Catholic Multi Academy Trusts by 2026. 

Headteacher's Welcome

I am delighted to be able to welcome you to our school as the new Headteacher of St Bernard’s Catholic Primary School. I feel extremely honoured and privileged to have been chosen to continue to build upon the success the school has already achieved under the leadership of Mrs Barlow. 

Mr Turner 



St. Bernard’s is a Catholic school which seeks to live out the values of Jesus Christ. We promote these values by our words and deeds, and Catholic doctrine and practice therefore permeates every aspect of the school’s activity. We provide a Catholic curriculum, which is broad and balanced, recognising that every pupil is unique and is created in the image of God (Gen 1:27). 

Nursery Information

Our Nursery is situated in a classroom joining our reception classroom and has access to quality outdoor provision. The Nursery is based in its own designated area but works closely with our reception class. We think it is important that our Nursery children are incorporated into the daily life of the school.

Rosary Club

During May, all children are invited to join the Rosary Club where we will be dedicating some special time to Mary every Tuesday lunchtime. We will be learning more about the rosary and how much of a special and powerful prayer it can be.
