About Our School

sspeterpausignWe are a Roman Catholic primary school that has been established in Tyne Dock since 1889. The present school was built in the late 1960’s.

We are a close-knit family school with a developing Pastoral System to help your child and the school’s staff to grow together in a positive and caring way.  We have many links with the parish and the parents.  We encourage you to be actively involved in your child’s education.

S.S. Peter α Paul’s School is a voluntary-aided parish school which means that it is supported, pastorally and financially by the church going people of our Parish.

Our Parish school has a long family tradition.  Perhaps you are continuing that family association or you may be making contact for the first time.  Whatever the reason, you, and your child are very welcome in what we hope will be a warm and successful partnership.

Parents who do send their child to a Catholic school do so because they desire for the children to have not only a good secular education, but also a meaningful, spiritual and moral education.

We expect parents who send their children to our school to be in sympathy with our ethos.
