Striving for excellence in all that we do,
reflecting the Light of Christ to the world


A very warm welcome to our website, and thank you for your interest in our academy.

St. Bernadette’s Catholic Primary Voluntary Academy offers a rich and wholesome education for 3–11 year old children in Ashby, Scunthorpe. Upon entering our academy, children are welcomed into a warm and loving environment, beginning a journey with us during which, at every step, they will be helped and encouraged to grow, blossom, and flourish into the person God created them to be.

We are passionate about inspiring children with the joy of learning, providing an ambitious, well-rounded education, full of challenge and rigour; fun and creativity; excitement and wonder. St. Bernadette’s is a place where hard work and effort are championed; achievements big or small are praised; success is celebrated; and mistakes are not criticized but rather seen as opportunities to learn and grow; and we strive to ensure that each child endeavours to work hard to make the very best progress that they can during their time with us, and attain the very highest academic standards of which they are capable.

Moreover, we encourage children to strive for excellence in all that they do in every aspect of life in our academy, shaped as it is by a strong Catholic ethos centred on love of God and love of neighbour, so we extend a very warm welcome to you all in the Holy Name of Jesus.
