St Catherine Catholic Primary School is a single form entry school, within the London

Borough of Hillingdon; the school is oversubscribed. It has a very strong partnership with the Church and the local community. The community is welcoming with supportive parents and a

local parish at its heart.


Our children are very well behaved, happy and thrive on learning. The school has a strong history

of sporting accolades, a dedicated and skilled staff team and a supportive governing body.

We have a Friends of St Catherine Charity, who are active in fundraising and support many school events.


Following our recent successful Ofsted inspection, the board of governors are seeking an outstanding professional who will play a key role in the strategic leadership of the school.

The successful candidate will have the vision required to provide the best education for the children in our care.

  • Effective in motivating and inspiring staff to be successful.
  • Able to challenge practices to improve outcomes and drive excellence.
