About us

St Margaret Clitherow is a small Catholic Primary School, at the heart of the Brixham community. Our school has a wide catchment area, attracting pupils from Brixham, Paignton and the South Hams.

The school currently has 3 Classes with the layout as follows:

Starfish – Reception, Year 1 and 2

Dolphins – Year 3 and 4

Sharks – Year 5 and 6


Our school day runs from 8.45am until 3.15pm.

We are fortunate to have ‘Butterflies’ a privately run playgroup on site, which caters for pre-school children. These children are often involved in school events and many of them go on to join our Reception class. We also have a thriving Parents and Toddlers group that meets in the school hall on a weekly basis. This  is a good way of introducing young children to the school environment.
