Welcome to

Garstang St Thomas

CE Primary School

& The Rural Wyre Children's Centre

Whether you are considering schools for your child, you are already a pupil or a parent at our  school or you’re just interested in what’s been happening in your community we hope you will enjoy looking at the site.

 We’ve tried to include everything that we think will be of interest but if there’s something  we’ve missed we’d love to hear from you.

Garstang St Thomas' is a caring, Christian school with a wide-ranging, creative curriculum. Our breakfast club and Tommy's Time, our after-school club  enable us to offer care from 8am through to 5.50pm Monday to Friday for children from 4 - 11.   Through close links with our on-site Children's Centre and private nursery we are able to extend that care with support and advice for parents of under fives. For more information on how the children's centre can work with your family please click here.

We offer a number of diverse after-school activities: in the last year these have included the ever-popular  football, netball and tennis as well as dance, dodgeball, self-defense, cookery and tag-rugby.

If you would like to visit the school, we would be happy to see you, at one of our open days or events or for a tour of the school at your convenience.  To arrange a visit please call our admin officers Mrs Heather Hodge or Mrs Janet Williams and they will be happy to arrange it for you.

Mission Statement

Promoting Achievement – The best we can offer for every child

Through developing our Christian Ethos we aim to promote a stimulating education

  • ensuring every member of the school is valued and cared for as a member of God’s family;

  • providing the best education possible so that all pupils are enabled to reach their full potential in every aspect of life

  • promoting growth in understanding the Christian faith and its relevance for daily living through acts of worship, the RE syllabus, church involvement and by developing a respect for other religions

  • creating and nurturing links between the school, home, church and the wider community.


Ofsted May 2014


"Pupils make good progress from their starting points. Standards at Key Stage 2 are above average in reading, writing and mathematics. An above-average proportion of pupils makes better than expected progress in reading and mathematics.

Children get off to a good start in the Reception class and all make good progress, so that the majority achieve a good level of development by the time they leave the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Teaching is good and staff provide many high quality and exciting opportunities for pupils to learn well and make good progress in English, mathematics and other subjects.

Pupils are very eager to learn and have high expectations of what they can achieve.

Pupils feel safe in school. The quality of care that staff give pupils is exemplary, especially those who have additional needs or whose circumstances make them particularly vulnerable.

All staff are committed to the school's highly supportive, Christian ethos and all new arrivals to the school community are welcomed with love and encouragement.

Governors are supportive, knowledgeable and have an accurate view of the school's performance. They have worked well with senior leaders to raise standards and further improve the quality of teaching."
