St Chad's Catholic Primary School - South Hill, Backburn Road

St Chad’s South Hill is a Voluntary Aided Catholic Primary School which provides a broad and balanced education to
children aged 4 plus years within the framework of the National Curriculum.
St Chad’s School is situated in idyllic rural surroundings. To the south west there are views of West Lancashire to
Upholland and Parbold Hill, to the north west there are magnificent views of the Fylde and on sunny days Blackpool
Tower can be clearly seen. The area provides a rich source of learning opportunities – a close awareness of the changing
seasons, the study of plants and animal habitats, geographical features of the landscape and the development of rural
communities. The Church and surrounding villages provide an excellent stimulus for historical research. We consider
that the children are privileged to grow and learn in an environment so close to nature.
As a Catholic School we aim to promote the Catholic ethos in all areas of school life. We aim to educate our pupils in a
truly Catholic atmosphere where Gospel values are practised as well as preached.
