Welcome to St Oswald’s Catholic Primary School, a ‘small’ school with a ‘big’ heart!
I am very proud to be the headteacher of St Oswald’s. I firmly believe that the school offers a warm, welcoming and supportive environment in which all children can flourish and achieve their best. Our school mission, “ to live, love and learn in the light of the example set by Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Catholic Church” permeates everything that we do.
St Oswald’s is situated at the heart of the village of Coppull, a village which has strong historical traditions with links to Lancashire’s textile and mining heritage. We keep this heritage alive in school by naming our school houses after three of the mines in the area, Blainscough, Chisnall and Park. The school has been on this site since 1904 and retains many of its original features. However the classrooms today are bright and spacious and we have excellent outdoor play and sports facilities.
I hope that you will find this website informative and that it gives you a flavour of what makes our school such a special community. If you would like to visit us you will be assured of a warm welcome!
