Schools Serving Our Parishes


Annecy Catholic Primary School
Paul Gallagher Head 01323 894892

Vision: All we do at Annecy Catholic Primary School is based on the gospel and inspired by faith. Our vision is of a loving, safe and welcoming school where everyone has the opportunity and support to grow in their faith and to recognise and fulfil their God-given gifts and talents. Rooted in Catholic Christianity, we work with pupils, parents, the parish and our wider community to provide outstanding Catholic education for our pupils.

Mission Statement: Jesus says, I call you friends. (Jn15:15). At Annecy, we believe in God. We praise Him and learn to follow His ways, growing in our Catholic faith and in our love for one another. With Jesus to guide our thinking and learning, we celebrate our uniqueness and our distinctive gifts, achieving our best in a variety of ways. With the Holy Spirit helping us to make the right choices, we seek to become better disciples of Jesus and show the love of God to the world.

Annecy is a warm, welcoming, friendly and open environment, where we are true to our Vision and Mission Statement, both in our words and actions. Each child is precious to us and we strongly believe that every child is uniquely created by God and given their own gifts and talents.

We aim to nurture each individual so that they can reach their full potential and go on to become life-long learners; spiritual, confident, independent and creative. Our curriculum is fun and engaging and through it pupils will experience working in a range of contexts in a variety of groupings, working to the best of their ability. I believe in strong and effective communication and this is evident with our links between home, school and Parish.

We are proud of our fantastic school, devoted to its constant development, and very much hope that you will decide to journey with us. Being part of thriving school community is very exciting and fulfilling. I invite you to come and visit our school and experience the living reality. During your visit you will be given a tour by the pupils and will then have the opportunity to meet and talk with me.

Live Love Learn

Our vision for Our Lady of Lourdes School - A dynamic,inclusive school rooted in it's Catholic values and respect for all people; a safe place of successful, enjoyable and challenging learning.

Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School is a One Form entry school, located in the historic village of Rottingdean on the outskirts of Brighton. We offer places for children aged 4 - 11 for Primary School education and pride ourselves in providing children with education and social skills, while ensuring their emotional needs are continually met.

We continually work to maximise opportunities for our children to reach full potential by developing our inside and outside learning environments. Recently we have refurbished all our Junior classrooms and redeveloped the library area to be inviting and stimulating places to learn. In partnership with governors and the PTA, the school has resurfaced all playing areas, as well as developed a new and engaging wildlife area in the school grounds.

Our Reception classroom has undergone complete refurbishment, ready to welcome our new intake to a bright, modern and stimulating learning environment.

Teaching children English and Maths is important, but we also understand that working together is a big part of the skills needed for life after education. At Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School we actively encourage teamwork and the helping of others through the promotion of a Growth Mindset, Playground Buddies and collaborative learning.
