St Mary Magdalen's Catholic Primary School

Nurturing hearts and minds

Meet the headteacher

On behalf of the staff, pupils and governors of St Mary Magdalen's I would like to welcome you to our school website.   St Mary Magdalen’s is a consistently high achieving, over subscribed school in Penwortham with an experienced staff team committed to making your child’s time at school successful, worthwhile and enjoyable. We offer a stimulating education in an atmosphere of Christian care and love.  We value all our children and celebrate the uniqueness of them all and all they have to offer.

Our academic results are high and children make good progress but we are a school that is not complacent and we constantly strive to improve and to make our school the very best it can be.   I feel privileged to be the Headteacher of such a wonderful school with such well behaved and thoughtful children. I report annually to parents on our performance as a school. 

I hope that you find all the information on the website that you are looking for and that you will make this one of your favourites. If you have any unanswered questions or would simply like to see the school in action please do not hesitate to contact me.


Mrs Claire McKinnon
