Welcome to Whickham Parochial Church of England Primary School

At Whickham Parochial we believe that every child is entitled to enjoy their childhood and celebrate their individuality. Our school motto is ‘Let your Light Shine’ and we encourage our children to do this every day – to shine for themselves, for their family and friends, and for the world around them.

We are so proud of our loving, nurturing school and the high standard of educational provision we offer to all of our children.

We are a fully inclusive Church of England school at the heart of the Whickham community. Our school began its journey as the parish school of St Mary’s Church in Whickham and our links with the church and Father Barry Abbott continue to be one of the defining features of our school. As such, our vision is to provide excellent teaching and learning for all children, supporting them to reach their full potential whilst developing in our all pupils the values of Christianity. In doing so, we hope to support our children in becoming compassionate, respectful, forgiving and tolerant young people who become guiding lights in their communities and for the world.

If you would like to know more about us, or to arrange a visit, please do not hesitate to contact me on our school email or by calling us at 0191 4887867.
