Welcome to St Margaret Clitherow. Places available for reception September 2024 and other year groups. Come and see us!

We are a GOOD school and now OFSTED agree!!!

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you find the information useful and that it helps you to understand why our mission is to create a safe and happy school with a Catholic ethos in the heart of the Brixham Community.

St Margaret Clitherow is a small school with a big vision to encourage your child to achieve the highest possible standard in academic achievement and behaviour in a friendly, respectful and nurturing “village school” atmosphere. We believe that every child is unique and by working together we can help your child to thrive in the primary years.

At St Margaret Clitherow, we aim to provide a high standard of academic achievement, in an environment which is deeply rooted in values. We also want our children to develop independence and responsibility. We want our children to feel happy, safe and secure. The atmosphere at school reflects this, with a relaxed and caring environment in which children can learn effectively.

Pupils and staff are encouraged to reach their full potential, in faith and learning, in a nurturing, stimulating and rewarding environment.
