I am pleased to let you know that Rachel Swindell has been offered and accepted with great enthusiasm the role of Head of School to take over from Adrian La Chapelle in due course.

We had a field of three excellent candidates who gave of their best and in the end it was a tough decision but the interview panel believe this is the best decision for the school.

I would like to thank all of you who were involved, your input was invaluable and proved an important part of the decision making process.

Kind regards

Stephen Thomson
Chairman of Governors


Our mission at St Augustine's Catholic Primary School is to make our children feel cared for and secure in our school, where Catholic values are practised and where all our children's gifts and abilities are  recognised and developed in a family atmosphere of respect and friendship.

This is summed up by the banner in our Hall that reads ' We try to follow Jesus by loving each other and caring for God's world'.

We are one of the longest established primary school's in the whole country, set in the heart of Old Costessey and a caring, family atmosphere pervades all aspects of school life. We have a strong sense of internationalism both through our curriculum and our links with other countries across the globe as well as our links with the local families and community that ground us in Old Costessey. 

The children in turn value their time at St Augustine's and are always welcomed back and an interest is taken in their future schooling and their life beyond.

Please do take the time to look at all the pictures, work and events that are shown on our website. Click here to go to our 'What's on' page that contains up to date information about the school and maybe bookmark us to your computer or tablet.
